I am proud to be working in a full-time R&D staff position at Oak Ridge National Laboratory since May 11, 2009. I am also joint faculty at The University of Tennessee since August 1, 2012.

I graduated from The University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a Ph.D. in Computer Science in May 2009. I graduated from Jacksonville State University, AL, in Spring 2001 with a double-B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, and again with a M.S. in Systems and Software Design in Spring 2004.

My interests include: Optimization, Human/Computer Interaction (HCI), Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation, High Performance Computing (HPC), energy efficient buildings, computer vision, robotics, cloud computing, scientific visualization, computer graphics, General Purpose computation on Graphical Processing Units (GPGPU), image fusion, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 3D printing, and quantum computing.
