As a Computer Science
grad student at Caltech,
I have worked in the following projects:
- I am investigating for my PhD
peer-to-peer application development using event-based integration and
the Web. A component of this is a global event model for proving the
correctness of distributed resource management systems; see my
PhD Proposal summary.
Systems, a research group of the
Center for Research on Parallel Computation, working on
Problem Solving Environments.
Current work with the
Infrastructures using Java and the Internet, might give rise to my
- An analytic performance model for applications running on
work presently consuming my time; advisor:
- Consulting analyst, Roadrunner Technology in San Mateo, California,
under Dr. Robert X. Cringely, The Man With The Plan. Prepared a
presentation for Canon International, recommending strategies for the
development and deployment of managed intelligent multifunction Internet
devices and peripherals.
- Research interned in summer 1996 at
Laboratories in Palo Alto, California, under
Drs. Rajiv Gupta and Bill Rozas, Client Utility Systems Project.
Designed and implemented an adaptive mobile World Wide Web
robot using remote procedure calls over TCP/IP; prepared a preliminary
investigation of mobile code issues in developing a kernel operating
- Consulted in summer 1995 for
Chandy Associates in Los Angeles.
Helped prepare a manuscript on concurrent virtual machines for
research on the state-of-the-art in parallel and distributed
architectures, operating systems, programming languages, paradigms,
formal methods, object models, and compound document models.
Research Program in Parallel Computing for Woman and Minorities,
as a helper/coordinator with
- Worked during summer 1994 at
Griffiss Air Force Base
in Rome, New York, near
investigating software engineering
tools for parallel programming with Milissa Benincasa and Carla Burns.
This work was done at Rome
Laboratory, working with the SUNY
Institute of Technology in Utica, New York.
- The eText electronic
textbook project, with Mani Chandy, and students
Kryukova. We will be integrating this work with
CICA in a collaboration with
- The parallel
developed by Mani Chandy and
for which Paul
Peter Carlin constructed a stellar
- My graduate advisor at the
College of William and Mary was
and I worked with Joel Saltz
during summer 1990 at
Dan Palumbo at NASA-Langley during summer 1992, in Hampton, Virginia.
