Greetings, and welcome to my corner of the Web!
A little about me...For over a decade, I have served as a researcher in the computer science domain. During this time, I've been fortunate to work on projects that have enabled me to closely interact with and enable new communities with technology. I greatly enjoy the way computers can be used to empower a diverse set of application domains (so much so that I pursued a Ph.D. in the subject).
A career in academia has given me the opportunity to work at several international research centers and participate in initiatives tackling an array of interesting and engaging problems. This has been a fun and valuable experience that has allowed me to engage with a diverse set of researchers while concurrently traveling to and exploring some really great places. Among the institutions I have been lucky to call home are the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Germany), the Center for Computation & Technology at Louisiana State University (USA), the Cardiff School of Computer Science & Informatics at Cardiff University (UK), and the Information School at the University of Washington (USA).
In the realm of computer science, my expertise and interests lie roughly in the areas of collaborate environments and information exchange, high-performance and scientific computing, distributed networks, and ("big") data management.See my CV for more information about my background and research interests.
