I am presently a Principal Engineer in the Trusted Systems group at Collins Aerospace.

Previously, I was a Software Engineer in the Industrial Sector Software, Electronics and Controls group at Eaton, and before that, a Systems Engineer in Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management (CRDM) at Medtronic.  In both those roles I researched development and implementation best practices, tools, techniques, and methodologies for improving product dependability.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science from Antioch College in 1997.  In 2004, I received my Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.  I received another Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Vanderbilt University in 2006.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Vanderbilt University, where I was a research assistant at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS).  My research there focused on networked embedded systems, specifically on time synchronization, localization, and navigation in mobile wireless sensor networks.
