I got my Ph. D. in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in March 2009. At U of T I worked in Automated Verification,
under the supervision of Prof. Marsha Chechik. After graduation I worked at JPL as a Software Engineer/Researcher. I am currently working as a Software Engineer in Lincoln, NE. Will no longer actively maintain this page.
