I am a programmer at the San Diego
Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego,
currently working in the UC Compute Systems group. I am the project lead and
developer for the
Inca Grid monitoring software tool
(originally developed for TeraGrid) and
am UCSD's representative for the UC Grid
project. I am also SDSC's PI and chair of the Performance Committee for the FutureGrid project led by Indiana
Previously, I did Grid portal development work for the Extreme! Computing Lab
in the Computer Science department at Indiana University. I received my
Master's in Computer Science at UCSD in 2001 and did my thesis work on
tunable application-level scheduling for an online parallel tomography
