I graduated with my masters from the Computer Science Department at the University Of Wisconsin, Madison in May 2010.

My research interest is in data management with emphasis in information extraction and information integration systems. I studied under Associate Professor AnHai Doan. As a member of the DBLife project team I was an implementer on DBLife 2.0 and wrote my master's thesis on building DBLife 2.0.

I completed my undergrad at Utah Valley University
