About Me

Professional

I am currently a PhD student at Northwestern University studying computer systems. More specifically I am focusing on the interactions and optimizations made available by interweaving the computing stack. An example of this work can be seen in my project CARAT in which I use the compiler, runtime, and operating system to make a case for removing hardware for memory management.

My current work expands upon CARAT and begins to investigate new opportunities enabled by having a pure software memory management system that understands the binaries memory state.

Hobbies

Theater

I have been involved in theater for 15+ years. I love to be involved in performances in whatever way I can at the time and enjoy going to see productions near me as well.

At Rose-Hulman (my undergraduate institution), I had the privilege to serve as the Treasurer for the Drama Club and the Vice-President of the Choir. I also got to star in the productions Anything Goes, West Side Story, Les Miserables, Little Shop of Horrors, and Cinderella as well as act in the plays A Servant of Two Masters and Much Ado About Nothing.

I also got to be involved in many theater productions at Lake Zurich High School and Lake Zurich Middle School as an actor. I also served as a crew member for various productions which taught me many things about woodworking and set design.

Fantasy Football

I am an avid fan of football (Go Pack Go!) as well as fantasy football. I play in a mix of dynasty leagues (long term year to year ownership) as well as redraft (what people typically think of as fantasy football). I constantly am keeping up to date on players and league news and am always happy to talk about football with whomever.

I also have tried (unsuccessfully) to utilize my computer science background to obtain an edge over others in fantasy football. In the past, I built (simple) machine learning models that trained on a combination of player statistics, opponent's defensive statistics, Vegas odds, and other potentially important fantasy related data to attempt to predict future player performance, but unfortunately it did not do a great job; however, it did confirm that football is the sport that is a beautiful combination of skill and chance.
