I teach mostly theory courses, including automata theory, complexity theory, cry ptography, and Xtreme Theory (our wonderful survey course on emerging topics in theory of computing). My research interests include complexity theory, graph algorithms, and electronic commerce.

I have a Ph.D. and M.S. in computer scienc e from the University of Rochester. My advisor was Lane Hemaspaandra. As a Ph.D. student, I interned at Los Alamos National Laboratories (and continue to collaborate with the people I met there) and Co mpaq's (formerly Digital Equipment Corporation's) Systems Research Center.

Before that, I worked for the consulting companies The Rochester Grou p and CIBER, Inc. Before that, I was the assistant to the artis t Will Cotton. I have a B.A. in mathematics from Cornell University.
