I am a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Puget Sound, where I also served a term as Chair of Computer Science from 2019-22. Prior to my appointment at Puget Sound, I was on the Engineering and Computer Science faculty at Washington State University, Vancouver.

I received a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University (2010) as a member of the Systems Group. Under the supervision of Gagan Agrawal (now Associate Dean at Augusta), I worked on problems in the dynamic composition, performance modeling, and optimizations of scientific workflows over distributed cloud computing environments. I also worked under Paul S. Wang at the Institute of Computational Mathematics (ICM/Kent State) on the transmission of mathematics education modules for my BS/MS degrees. My current teaching and research interests include database management, distributed cloud computing, and the web. I am a member of ACM and a senior member of the IEEE.

I am the recipient of the 2017 Kristine Bartanen Research Award and the 2022 President’s Excellence in Teaching Award from the University of Puget Sound.
