I am a research scientist at the Innovative Computing Laboratory at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. My research is in the solution of linear algebra problems on modern computers with multi-core and GPU architectures, as part of the PLASMA and MAGMA projects. I received my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where my research investigated the parallel implementation of digital volume correlation, a method used in mechanical engineering. Previously, I worked at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), researching high-performance wide-area networking, and at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL), investigating ODE solvers and parallel linear algebra methods.

In my free time, I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy, hiking, wood working, road and mountain biking, baking, and playing with Legos. I’ve been learning a little bit of Chinese (我學一點兒中文) and had a great trip visiting Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong this past summer.
