I am a sixth year graduate student at the University of Chicago's Computer Science department, studying under Dr. John Reppy. I recently defeneded my dissertation, which is on how to add mutation safely and efficiently into a functional parallel programming language. In the in-between times, I've been doing and publishing work on our runtime, garbage collector, and most recently some extensions to control-flow analysis.
Before that, over the course of seven years I was a manager and a developer at Microsoft in the Visual Studio organization, working on next-generation software development tools technoglogy out at the Redmond, WA offices. More of my work history is in my resume.
I have a brother who keeps busy and thinks I'm crazy to sit at a desk all day.
