Biographical Sketch

I'm currently a PhD student in computer science, working with Dr. Arnold in the Scalable Systems Lab on issues related to high-performance computing. I am also part of the lab's ongoing partnership with Cray, Inc., developing library and compiler tests (with a focus on OpenMP and MPI). Prior to coming to the lab, I published on topics in philosophy of mind and philosophy of computation, and taught courses on cognitive science, logic, 20th century analytic philosophy, and philosophy of AI at Mount Holyoke and the College of Charleston.
