As a researcher in the Infrastructure Software Group at IBM Research-Tokyo, I am engaged in computer language and operating system research with respect to performance and memory utilization. Although my primary interests include reliability, performance, and Unix operating systems topics, I enjoy investigating new fields since the knowledge and experience from one area typically improve understanding in other areas.

While attending school, I worked as programmer enhancing the Corvus Operating System and implementing medical simulations. At IBM-Austin, in addition to leadership roles such as team lead and AIX Development Process ownership, I was responsible for development activities (function design, standards implementation, internationalization, performance, security, etc.) for a variety of AIX components. While at IBM Japan Systems Engineering Co. Ltd, I provided in-depth Unix technical consultation services for IBM engineers and customers throughout Asia, and also had the opportunity to serve as the ISE pSeries group leader.
