Profile

I was born in Kirkland, Washington and moved to the Midwest with my family when I was 3. I went to public school, enrolling in the advanced math, English and science courses, and took AP Calculus in high school.

I decided to go to Rose-Hulman because it was relatively local, and offered a great environment to learn when compared to big schools like Purdue. I enrolled as a Computer Science major but soon changed to Electrical Engineering.  After really enjoying Calculus III, decided to keep taking math classes until I had a double major. Courses such as discrete mathematics and numerical analysis became useful in engineering classes. I completed research work during my senior year on enhancing a system to compute electromagnetic fields.

Today, I works for Epic Systems, a software company which produces electronic medical records systems. My role in the company is to provide technical services to customers.  I use mathematics heavily when writing new logic and debugging problems in the system.  Analyzing an algorithm for performance and efficiency is critically important in the systems I work on because they are relied upon every day to help save lives.
