BashfulBytes is simply a means to document my various hobby and research hackings, along with some neat experiences throughout my journey as a computer scientist and young researcher. I'll probably also use this blog as a consistent source of comedic relief in the future, but that's just a side effect.
On this blog, you will find the most content on Python and Linux, my weapons of choice. If you wanna read about how I generate and host this blog, click here.
I am a fourth year PhD student in the PLASMA lab at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, working with Emery Berger. I have a BS in Computer Science from the University of Notre Dame and my interests lie in programming languages, compilers, CS education, and broadly systems. I married John Westhoff in October of 2020 and we have the sweetest pitbull named Ford (after Harrison, not Henry).
