I work at the intersection of computing and physics. My background is in theoretical physics, with a Ph. D. in particle theory from the University of Chicago. I now work in scientific computing at Fermilab, where I head the Scientific Computing Division's Scientific Software Infrastructure department, managing a group of 18 developers and scientists. My technical work is in high performance computing and computational accelerator physics. I specialize in emerging technologies and massively parallel computations on supercomputers.
Although my current focus is on computing, I have unique experience in physics,
having worked on all aspects of particle physics, including accelerators, experiments
