Dia duit! I am a lead modeling and simulation engineer at the MITRE Corporation in Mclean, Virginia. Most of my career has been in engineering and the natural sciences -- my undergraduate degree is in electrical engineering and my MS degree is in computer science. I am currently studying Computational Social Science at George Mason University in Virginia, where my research interests include high performance computing, physics, evolutionary algorithms, financial market models, and modeling of conflict. Coming from a natural science & computational science background, I hope to bolster my understanding of complex systems--along with the validation and quantitative analysis of computational models--while at CSSS. On the computational science end of things, I am interested in approaches to domain decomposition and distribution of very large agent based models across distributed-memory ("Beowulf class") clusters.
