I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. I am a research assistant at both Dr. Jack Dongarra’s Innovative Computing Laboratory and Dr. Michela Taufer’s Global Computing Laboratory. In this role, my research involves high performance sparse linear algebra.

I earned my B.A. degree in Math and Computer Science at Saint John’s University in Minnesota. As a member of the Collegeville research group, I did research in high performance sparse linear algebra, which lead to my current position.

My hobbies include programming, rowing and board games. My hobby programming spans a variety of small projects, primarily involving Common Lisp. The most notable of these projects is the SLIMA plugin for Atom, which enables interactive Common Lisp development in Atom.
