My background is in computational mathematics with an emphasis on supercomputing and massively parallel algorithm design. I'm currently a doctoral candidate in mathematics at The University of Colorado Boulder, working on distributed partition backtrack for computations in group and graph theory.
 
I'm a data scientist at SpotXchange in Denver, Colorado, where I work with Hadoop and Tableau. Formerly, I worked as a software engineer in high density storage at Silicon Graphics International (SGI). I also help develop the Sage open-source mathematics software system, as well as administrating the University of Colorado's Sage Notebook server..
 
In my spare time, I play with Twitter's streaming API and analyze data.
