I spend my research hours improving file and storage systems to more reliably and efficiently store important data.
What is your passion? I think everyone should know something about how computers work and how to program! I also really enjoy helping students develop, refine, and present their ideas.
What advice do you have for undergrads, grads, postdocs seeking careers in STEM fields? Focus your time and energy on the parts of your work that you enjoy the most and that you find the most rewarding.
Are you involved in any outreach programs (campus, state, or national)? Through the service-learning course CS 402 (Introducing Computer Science to K-12 Students), I guide UW students so that they can teach younger children about computational thinking and how to program. In small groups, the UW students run weekly after-school clubs at approximately 15 different Madison-area elementary schools.
What do you like to do when you’re away from work? I love to read, play piano, and travel with my family
