My primary research is in the area of Compiler Optimization. I am currently enrolled in the PhD in Computer Science program at Boise State University, where I work with Dr. Catherine Olschanowsky in her Research Lab (ADAPT). My current work entails source to source transformations at the Intermediate Representation (IR) level with the aim to produce better and more efficient codes. In the past year, I have been actively involved in researching transforming computations operating on one format to another.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests:

I am currently the president of the National Society of Black Engineers, Boise State University Student Chapter. We volunteer for various outreach arount the campus community. We participate in Engineering Science Festival, where k12 kids come to have some cool engineering experiences.
