software used to do computational fluid
dynamics (CFD) calculations in order to make the PVM software work in a truly
- This work consisted of rewriting Unix shell
scripts in Perl with the goal of being able to
configure both Unix workstations and Windows PC's
as nodes in a parallel virtual machine.
9/93-5/96: Consultant, Daugherty Systems,
St. Louis, MO
- Participated in the design and implementation
of an automatic software change control system.
This system consists of a GUI client written in
Microsoft Visual C++ running on Windows NT, non
GUI programs written in Microsoft Visual C++
running on Windows NT servers,and UNIX shell
scripts running on a workstation running HP-UX.
All these components connect to a common Oracle

North Stonington, CT
- Developed MS Windows based graphical user
interface (using Microsoft C 7.00 and the XVT
Portability Toolkit) for a program used to design
compressors - this program consists of New MS
Windows code and old FORTRAN code and will be
used as a model for migrating other programs to
