Education

California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, 1986-1988.
Physics major. Besides the physics/math core, I completed courses in algorithms and data structures, digital electronics, and integrated circuits.

Miscellany

I'm hard of hearing; this means email or instant messages are far more effective than phone calls, and meetings should be in a reasonably quiet place.
