I am currently a project leader at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Center for Applied Scientific Computing
which I joined in December 2006. I am also a part time research faculty at SCI. Before joining LLNL I was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I received a Ph.D. in computer science in the Fall of 2004 from the University of California, Davis and an M.S. and B.S. in Mathematics/Computer Science from the Leipniz University, Hannover, Germany.
