I have 25+ years industry and research experience in the areas of custom engineering software, object-oriented technologies, middleware, patterns, computer simulations, distributed realtime embedded (DRE) systems, and quality of service (QoS).

In May of 2011, I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN under the advisement of Dr. Douglas Schmidt and Dr. Aniruddha Gokhale. I am currently a faculty member of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana where I teach computing science courses and conduct research.
