I work for MIT in the Information Services & Technology (IS&T) department. As a member of the Faculty & Student Experience (FSX) team, I coordinate the Athena computing environment, which is our campuswide Linux environment.
The Athena environment makes use of the Debathena project, a student initiative which is now a collaboration between IS&T and the Student Information Processing Board (SIPB). I also act as a liason between SIPB and IS&T as much as possible, and I contribute to the Debathena project.
I'm an alumnus of MIT (S.B. 2002), where I majored in Urban Studies & Planning, concentrating primarily in transportation systems and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). My undergraduate thesis is available.
