Sam Thomas
Doctoral Student
Brown University

Overview

I am a first year doctoral student at Brown University under the advisory of R. Iris Bahar. I am currently working in the area of computer architecture and systems, with a focus on security in terms of new technologies. I have previous experience working with parallel algorithms and data structures for NUMA.

I graduated from Davidson College in the spring of 2020 with a B.S. in Computer Science with High Honors. I also majored in Political Science.

Some of my pre- and post-pandemic hobbies include playing disc golf and going to sporting events. I am affiliate with all Boston sports teams (sorry), and am also a big fan of Liverpool FC. I also very avidly support Davidson College sports - as a fan, member of the Cats Stats group, and (most importantly) as an alumni member of the pep band where I play saxophone.

During the pandemic, I spent some time developing a "Couch to Developer" course for people with no programming experience, so that they could put a website (like this one) together in five, two-hour sessions. We also went over skills like web-scraping and basic data science techniques.
