...in and around Madison, Wisconsin

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science in August 2009 and am currently employed at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.

As part of my dissertation work I developed the Extended Finite Automata (XFA) technique, which you can read about in my Oakland and Sigcomm papers on the subject, or (in more detail) in my dissertation.

In a previous academic life, I did some fun work in information retrieval, developing techniques for high-resolution detection of overlap in digital documents. I've earned Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and in Computer Science from BYU.  I've also got a Master's Degree from BYU in Computer Science.  My Master's Thesis was titled "Copy Detection Systems for Digital Documents".

Prior to returning to school I spent a few great years in Arizona working at Occam Networks, writing telephony signaling software for carrier-grade products using IP-based and traditional protocols.  I also spent some time at Motorola working on fixed-wireless infrastructures (MMDS band), among other things.
