I grew up in Indiana and Illinois before going on to major in computer science at Notre Dame. After college, I moved to Chicago and worked for a few years as a developer at Clarity Consulting, a medium-sized software consulting firm focused on custom application development. Later, I decided to shift to a more research-based career, and I am now studying programming languages and working towards my Ph.D. here at Northeastern.
Having come from a development background, my research interests lie in making software development easier by improving programming languages and the ecosystems surronding them. My current research is in the intersection of computer networks and programming languages. For now, further details of my research are covered by an NDA.
