I completed my BS at UNL as well, majoring in Computer Science, with a minor in Philosophy. During this time, I was an early member of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering's Learning Assistant Program as a Senior Leader, helping to get the program off the ground. I was also involved in OS2G, for a time, as Vice President.
Outside of research, I enjoy cooking and baking. I'm also an Emacs user (and have contributed to a few packages, as well as maintain a couple of my own).
