In my free time, I enjoy dogs, bikes, and making pistachio butter. I like to bake fresh pizza at home.
At Molina Healthcare, I ran a DevOps team that automated deploys of 1200 apps and manages source code.
I apply less common algorithms to sometimes practical problems. The Go programming language made me love programming again.
At University of Arizona, I took a 1-on-1 class with Udi Manber on stringology. Udi went on to head search at Yahoo, Amazon, Google, and YouTube. From Robert E. Smith, I learned how to solve optimization problems using genetic algorithms.
At Microsoft Research, I worked on the Icon programming language with David R. Hanson. At Texas Instruments, I built compilers, assemblers, and debuggers for DSPs and microcontrollers. A few weeks after 9/11/2001, I started building radar systems for the Air Force used to pick up bin Laden.
Ph.D. in computer science and M.S. in A.I.
