My background

In 2008, I graduated from the University of Evansville with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. After graduation from the University of Evansville, I worked full-time time for Magellan Integration, a low-voltage security company based in Evansville, IN. In 2009, I moved to Saint Louis, Missouri to pursue a Masters Degree in Computer Engineering at Washington University in Saint Louis. I received my Master’s degree in 2010 and moved to Dallas, Texas for a full-time position as a Software Developer. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas with a focus on hardware formal verification. Between 2012 and now, I have worked as an intern for NXP (former Freescale) in Austin, TX and IBM Research Lab in Cambridge, MA.

I am also the president and founder of a nonprofit organization bringing new technologies such as energy efficient computers and embedded systems for schools in Africa. The nonprofit is called Cercle Social and was founded in November 2010. You can visit one of our projects here pi.cerclesocial.org.
