I received a BA from the Mathematics Department at UCSD, an MSc from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at OSU (my advisor at OSU was Renee Miller, who is now at Toronto), and a PhD from the College of Computing at Georgia Tech (my advisor at Georgia Tech was Ed Omiecinski). I am the recipient of a 2008 Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship, a National Science Foundation CAREER award, and a 2007 ACM SIGMOD Best Paper Award. I have been at Rice since January, 2009, and I have been on the faculty of the computer science department at the University of Florida since 2002, and will continue to be affiliated with UF until I officially resign in August, 2010. I am an associate editor for ACM Transactions on Database Systems, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, and the Very Large Database Journal. In my spare time, I enjoy running, gardening, and outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, and whitewater boating. In one particular exploit, my wife and I floated a whitewater raft (home-made from scratch using a sewing machine, glue, and plastic) over 100 miles down the Nizina River (and beyond) in Alaska.
