This page is part of the Spacing Guild Co-op. This site began as Matt On-line in 1996. Since then, it has undergone many major revisions, including a former version written in JSP, culminating in this version you see here. This version has been in use since 2007. I wrote the backend software using the Django web framework. The page design is by Andreas Viklund, modified by myself, and taken from Open Source Web designs.

As for myself, I'm currently a trader/developer at a high frequency trading startup. Previous to this I worked at Walleye Trading and Allston Trading. Prior to that I was a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign studying wireless networking. My master's thesis is titled "An Interlay Architecture for Wireless Mesh Networks." I graduated from the University of Florida (2001) with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics and an M.S. from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. My wife, Kim, is an assistant professor in theology at the University of Notre Dame. She just published her first book. I have three children, Thomas, Juliana, and Hildegard.

For fun, I like to play video and board games, program computers, and read novels. I also enjoy traveling and camping, although life in the midwest has made outdoor activities more difficult.

See the d20 Modern character sheet of myself I made when I was still a lowly graduate student.
