 Education:   
                     -High School:  L.C.A., Lynchburg VA GPA 4.0+  (1993).
 
                     -Undergraduate:  B.S. in Mathematics with Computer Science  
                     concentration from Liberty University GPA 4.0  (1997). 
 
                     -Graduate: M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2004) in Mathematics from Virginia Tech 
                     Center for Statistical Mechanics and Mathematical Physics. 
 
                     -Math, Physics, Computer Science courses: see attachment. 
   
 Computer:    
                     -Programming experience: C++, FORTRAN, PASCAL, PROLOG, LISP,
                     and UNIX shell scripts, including GAWK.

 Experience:
 
          -Framatome Technologies
.
                     Lynchburg VA . Job description included comparisons of, predictions of, and extrapolation 
                     from data measured in the reactor cores of nuclear power plants. 
                     Also used FORTRAN computer modeling of boiling water reactors for 
                     purposes of high level waste research.
