I studied scientific computing with a bachelor's degree from the University of Washington and a master's from Kungliga Tekniska högskolan. My master's thesis on computer simulations for the PoGOLite pathfinder flight can be found here.
I like open source software. Some of the projects I've worked on are linked to from my GitHub and Google Code pages. I have done some work with FreeBSD, including improving dirhash for the 2008 Google Summer of Code.
