I graduated from the Texas Academy of Math and Science (high school) in 1994, and attended college at Caltech. I lived in Blacker House, majored in mathematics and electrical engineering, and graduated in 1998. I then attended graduate school at MIT in the Stochastic Systems Group where I completed my PhD in 2005 under the supervision of Alan Willsky and John Fisher.
I'm a member of SKA since 1994, and have at various times called home dojos in Denton, TX; Caltech; MIT; Lake Forest, CA; and Chicago, IL. Photos from the SKA 2001 trip to Japan and the Waseda University karate club's 70th anniversary can be found here.
