enrolled at Florida State University
as a mathematics major in 1998.
I began my research in summer of 2001 with Kyle
Gallivan at the School of
Computational Science. In the spring of
2002, I graduated from FSU with a Bachelor of Science in both Computer Science and Pure Mathematics.
I defended my Master's thesis,
"A Block Incremental Algorithm for Computing Dominant Singular Subspaces",
in April of 2004, and graduated with an MS in Computer Science in the
summer of 2004.
In the fall of 2004, I began the Ph.D. program in Computer
Science and was admitted into candidacy in the fall of 2005. During the time that
I wrote my dissertation, I participated in three
internships at Sandia National
Labs, where I worked
on the Anasazi eigensolvers package in the Trilinos project, as well as the
Salinas structural dynamics finite element code.
I successfully defended my dissertation in May 2005 in the School of Computational Science.
In June 2008, I began a post-doc at Sandia in the Scalable Algorithms department with Mike Heroux. In September, I left Sandia for a staff position in the Computational Engineering and Energy Studies Department at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
