I work in the exascale computing division at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. I have a Ph.D. in computational quantum chemistry and undergraduate degrees in computer science, mathematics, and chemistry. My focus is on scientific computing and massively parallel computing, but I have tangential interests all over the place—from language design to analysis of algorithms.
I love Python and C++. I passionately hate Fortran.
I like to make computers do cool things.
