I am a Sr. Staff Researcher and Co-Director of VMware Academic Program. VMAP
looks at external research and emerging technologies, and develops collaborations with top academic researchers around the globe. At the same time, we work to connect ideas with internal technical teams and to explore specific areas of research translation.
I have worked in a variety of technical roles over the years related to enterprise computing, including several years as a senior software engineer. My work in research over the last decade has spanned computer security, communications, system software, hardware architectures, and more.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2005.
