About Me

In keeping with the long standing academic tradition, this photo of me is about 10 years old.

As if August 2013, I have moved to FARO Technologies

Keep up with me here

I was a Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University (2010-2011)

I completed the PhD in the Department of Computed Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2009

I earned a B.S. in computer science from the University of Rochester in 2003
