Hi! I'm Brandon.
I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Texas State University. My current research is on adaptive synthesis of compression algorithms, working with Martin Burtscher at the Efficient Computing Lab (ECL).
My academic interests include parallel computing, web development, and game development. After hours you'll find me playing video games, watching movies, and making food and drinks.
