PhD candidate researching power grid resilience and equity; optimation enthusiast with software dev chops.
I’m just your regular Midwest transplant trying to hack it in Texas. I am a father, husband, and caregiver to two derpy cats. When I am not spending time with my family or working on my degree, I enjoy playing soccer, hiking, and learning about sustainability.
Professionally, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in ORIE at UT Austin researching power grid resilience and equity. I am currently engaged in research with the UT Energy Institute, Sandia National Laboratories, and CyManII. I attained an M.S. in ORIE at UT Austin, and a B.S. in math, electrical engineering, and computational science from the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-some techie. Prior to my graduate studies, I worked on HPC and mobile computing systems for Intel and Samsung. I brand myself as a mix between a software developer and applied mathematician.
