A full-stack developer trained in the art of high performance computing and hardware utilization. With more than 10 years of research experience in high performance and scientific computing, my diverse research background spans visualization, distributed applications, accelerator computing, data analysis, grid generation, and mesh-free numerical methods for physical sciences. Since joining the team at the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, I have led design and development on multifaceted research projects including cloud computing pipelines for personalized medicine, 3D CAD software for automated human spine modeling and thoracic volume reconstruction, and algorithmic design for emerging accelerator hardware like multi-GPU and FPGA environments. A developer at heart, I excel at translating scientific prototypes into efficient and scalable applications for peta-scale systems and elastic cloud environments alike. At present, I am leading the development of Stratus, a secure OpenStack cloud for scientific research on protected data.
Ph.D. in Scientific Computing from Florida State University ('13)
