I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Clemson University in Spring 2015. My dissertation is entitled Designing, Building, and Modeling Maneuverable Application within Shared Computing Resources.

My advisor was Dr. Amy Apon and I was part of the Big Data Systems Lab.

I am an Advanced Civil School (ACS) student on a fully funded Fellowship for the United States Army. In the summer of 2015, I will join the faculty of the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)Department.

My previous academic experience includes an BS in Computer Engineering from Clemson (class of 1998) and an MS in Computer Networking from North Carolina State University (class of 2009).

My previous military assignments include two deployments in support of Operation Iraq Freedom (2005-2006, 2010). I have been stationed in Texas, Georgia, Alaska, North Carolina, and Maryland.
