In May of 2011, recieved a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Arkansas for studying how mathematical studies from ecology can be applied to modern CPUs.
Before that, I was awarded an M.S. from Arizona State University for work on cluster computing with virtual machines. The term I used for cloud computing (before cloud computing existed) was "Dynamic Virtual Clusters".
My academic career began in 2003, when I did an REU (research experience for undergraduates) under Dan Stanzione at Clemson University. I graduated from Clemson in 2004 and moved to Tempe, Arizona to start work as an HPC cluster administrator at ASU.
