Vince Weaver brief biography
Vince Weaver obtained his B.S. in Electrical Engineering
from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2000.
He went on to work at a startup that made tablet PCs;
this lasted until the dot-com crash of 2001. After
a brief time spent writing web-interfaces for legacy
Fortran models for the Army, he decided to go to grad school.
He obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering
from Cornell University in 2010, where he focused on Computer
Architecture. He spent two years as a post-doctoral
researcher at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville,
working in Jack Dongarra's Innovative Computing Laboratory,
where he was a primary developer of the widely-used PAPI
performance analysis library. Currently he is an
Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at the University of Maine.
