I grew up in New Jersey and attended lots of schools during my time there: Woods Road Elementary School, Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart, Princeton Day School, and finally the Lawrenceville School. I was a first-former at the Lawrenceville School the first year they went co-ed (after 176 years of being an all male school).
After all that came MIT, where I double majored in computer science and math (my academic advisor was Gerald Sussman; Charles Leiserson and his then-PhD student Sivan Toledo supervised my undergraduate thesis). Then I went to graduate school in computer science at UC Berkeley, where I got my MS and PhD degrees (my advisor was Jim Demmel).
I have two amazing kids:

I used to dance a lot. Ballet when I was growing up, ballroom dancing in college (I was the first president of the MITBDC who was younger than the club), and Middle Eastern as a graduate student. I briefly danced with the Suhaila Dance Company.
