I earned my Ph.D and M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2008 and 2004, respectively. My advisors were Patrick McDaniel and Tom La Porta. I earned my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Richmond in 2002, where I also minored in Biology and Business.

In my spare time, I am an avid road-cyclist and love exploring the random locations on my bike. My other interests include playing golf, hiking, running and hanging out with Sheila whenever I can. It's also safe to say that I'm a huge sports fan and love to watch Penn State and Georgia Tech Football.

I have also been extremely fortunate and have traveled to many parts of the world. From Europe and Asia to Antarctica, I love seeing new places. You can count on me having my camera with me at almost all times.
