Welcome to my website!

I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the United States Military Academy, West Point. I am also a Research Fellow of West Point's Cyber Research Center. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University, and my M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My research interests include parallel computing, single board computers, experimental computer science, data analytics, and computational biology.

About my research: My current research encompasses three areas: parallel computing, single board computers, and computer science education. My current research explores how low-energy computers such as single-board computers can be applied to general-purpose computing (especially for parallel computing tasks), and also explores how such devices can be used to engage and inspire students in areas such as parallel computing and cyber security. My dissertation research focused on developing algorithms that enable scientists to efficiently analyze, store and share their large collections of evolutionary trees. I am a co-author of the free online textbook, Dive into Systems, and also a member of the CSinParallel leadership team.
