1999, 2000-2002 — Senior Software Engineer
Groton Neochem, LLC. (analytical chemistry software)
Accomplishments: As a lasting accomplishment, probably the most important thing I did was make all the Web site's code easily reuseable. In addition, I:
1999 - 2000 — Senior Software Engineer
Waterloo Maple, Inc. (symbolic math software)
Maple writes a symbolic algebra package, used by industry and students to solve problems symbolically (as opposed to numerically, though it does that too). I was responsible for maintaining the GUI for the current version and researching changes for a new version.
1996-1998 — Senior Software Engineer
Macsyma, Inc (Symbolic Math Software)
Macsyma was a friendly competitor of Maple, and made a similar program. It also made a finite element analysis program named PDEase. I was responsible for various aspects of MFE, the front end to both the symbolic algebra program and PDEase, and for communications between MFE and PDEase.
1995 — Software Consultant
At the time, ViaTech did CAD consulting for the automotive industry.
1993-1995 — Software Engineer
Sigma Design makes an architectural CAD package (ARRIS), running on various UNIX systems (Sun, HP, IRIX, Sco UNIX), Microsoft Windows. I was responsible for all aspects of the C portion of the program, including design and development of new features, integration of all platforms, porting to new platforms (the most notable being the port to Microsoft Windows), and support of the internal Sigmac language (used by other developers internally, external contracted developers, and end users).
1991-1993 — Software Engineer/Q.A. Engineer
Tested a solver-based CAD package (DesignView) running under Microsoft Windows and various UNIX systems.
1987-1991 — Programmer, Lab Assistant
Smithsonian Astronomical Observatory
Designed and wrote data analysis and testing procedures for the ROSAT and Einstein satellites (KSH script, Ratfor).
Ported software from a Data General/VAX to a Sun/UNIX workstation (FORTRAN, C, EQL, shell script).
Wrote real-time data retrieval, and data-analysis routines for the EXITE high-energy X-ray telescope.
Helped build the EXITE high-energy X-ray telescope.
Work at the Smithsonian varied from year to year between full and part-time.
1988 — Intern
Kodak Electronic Printing Systems, Inc.
Worked with the color science group developing and testing image-processing software for transformations between the (additive) color space of the computer screen and the (subtractive) space of the printer.

1989 — Mount Holyoke College
"Counting critical points of real polynomials in two variables"
I worked with Prof. Alan Durfee and a team of other undergraduates which looked into the distribution of ratios between maxima and minima of polynomials in real projective space. Much of this work investigated the relation of this problem to singular arrangements of curves in a plane. I co-authored a paper (published in American Mathematics Monthly, v. 100, n. 3, pp. 255-271) reporting the outcome of this work.
I have a BA in Mathematics from Harvard University (1991).
