About

I am a Computer Science PhD student at Texas State University under Dr. Martin Burtscher.
I received my BS in Computer Science with a Minor in Mathematics at Texas State University in May 2023.
I research in Dr. Burtscher's Efficient Computing Laboratory (ECL), analyzing and optimizing irregular parallel algorithms.

Research

Converted irregular parallel algorithms to the C++ std::thread standard
Implemented Minimum Spanning Tree in parallel using CUDA, OpenMP, and C++ std::threads
