i am a lecturer at MIT, in the department of electrical engineering and computer science. i graduated with a in computer science and engineering from MIT in 2011, and with an m.eng in electrical engineering and computer science (again from MIT) in 2012.


i have been involved with development and instruction of the following courses at MIT:

in spring 2012, i was awarded the Carlton E. Tucker Award for Teaching Excellence for my work with 6.01.


i grew up in rural Illinois (in the country near Princeton), and despite having been in the Boston area for several years now, i am still not much of a city slicker. my father teaches mathematics at Logan Junior High School, and my mother is a former math teacher (now retired) and currently owns Anne's Antiques. my elder brother also teaches math, at Hononegah High School in Rockton, IL.
i live in Lexington, MA with my trusty feline companion Stronger, whom i adopted from MRFRS in 2009. i keep myself occupied in my free time by playing and writing music, programming, drawing, watching movies and reading, and otherwise generally chilling.
