I'm on the faculty in the Department of Computer Science.

I did my undergraduate work at Purdue and Illinois and my graduate work at MIT, Stanford, and Texas.

I've worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (MCC).

Both of my parents were born and raised in Granada, Nicaragua. I was born in New York and grew up in Miami. My wife was born and raised in Managua, Nicaragua. She did her undergraduate work at Tufts and her graduate work at Salamanca and Texas, and is now a Ph.D. student in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
