I am a doctoral student (A.B.D.) in both the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab and the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science within the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachvsetts Institvte of Technology (M.I.T.) .

I am also a contributor to the David LaMacchia Defense Fund . Click here if you would like to know why.

My Doctoral Research - Descartes

My doctoral dissertation research is on dynamically adaptive profile-driven program specialization. I have been building a prototype system which I call Descartes. The name is a corruption of the initials for Dynamically Adaptive Scheme Compiler And Run-Time Execution Specializer. Those inclined towards anthropomorphization might describe it as a self-aware compiler and run-time system.

I expect to be defending and graduating very soon.
