Research astrophysicist with extensive experience in numerical computing and parallel algorithms applied to astrophysical problems ranging from the evolution of cosmic structure to long-term solar system stability. While working under the NASA HPCC initiative, developed the parallel N-body gravity code, PKDGRAV, which has been used by several research groups around the world and has provided new predicitions on the clustering properties of dark matter in the Universe. Is involved at present in a larger effort devoted to understanding galaxy formation in detail using GASOLINE, the hydrodynamics extension of PKDGRAV.

Born April 4, 1968 in Hamilton Ontario Canada of German parents, thus having dual Canadian and German citizenship and fluency in both English and German.
