Past Teaching Assignments:

  • Programming in Scheme
  • Programming  in C++
  • Data Structures using C++
  • Algorithms

  • Discrete Mathematics
  • Combinatorics and Probability
I also taught CMSC-10500 (Programming in Scheme) in the summer of 2004.

Other Assignments:

  • For a couple of years, I worked as a member of TechStaff (our CS Dept SysAdmin group), where I learnt a lot about System Administration and developed a Grand Unified Installer.
  • I worked as the webmaster (and still am) for the open access Journal Theory of Computing. In the process I got to write some LaTeX/TeX/BibTeX code as well as design and automate maintainance of a website.
  • Now, I am working with the ASCI FLASH code group and gaining some real world Distributed computing experience.

Areas of Interest
