My name is Cody Fleming - the title of this page provided a helpful hint - but you may call me Harrison. Before continuing this [entirely generous, selfless] activity I will make a note: though writing in the first person somewhat creeps me out, I will employ it in order to maintain a pseudointimate connection with the reader. It is still better than speaking in the 3rd person. I currently live in "Southie" - Boston, MA, where I daily partake in some of the best people-watching available during my commute to work. This "work" I mention is actually more of a high-intesity nerdist commune, whereby people of fairly diverse persuasions get together in an attempt to understand and solve some of our world's problems.
In short, I am an aspiring PhD student, with the long-term goal of becoming a professor. Perhaps I will properly develop this curriculum vitae when I get the time/motivation to do so, since this is what these academic types like to do. I am in the Complex Systems Research Laboratory at MIT (see Links) under the direction of Professor Nancy Leveson. She is a forward-thinker, a visionary, and has a sense of humor that is generally and unfortunately lacking in academia. Though my current experiences, i.e. spending every waking minute in the lab, suggest otherwise, I try to maintain some semblance of balance in life and so will move on to the "other things".
