They're my school  •  Deputy Division Director, Research Protections, Office of Naval Research. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign grad. Yale grad.
Not only is Mike is very knowledgeable about his field, he likes to push boundaries with his skills. He's very innovative and meticulous. ... Personally, he's pleasant and fun to be around.
Richard Raspet

Mike is a very deep thinker and able to accomplish much in difficult situations.
Eric Jakobsson
We worked together  •  Professor, University of Illinois and Center Affiliate, NCSA/UIUC.
Mike worked for me as a student, so it was a while ago. He dove into the graphic primitives library of the first graphics-capable computer ... that my lab bought and built a molecular graphics program from scratch that we were able to use in our research. Just incredibly smart and quick. We have not worked together in recent years, but I think a lot of his brain.

Mike knows the market and had great ideas!

Outstanding researcher, smart, and hard-working. He'd be an asset to any team but he's also independent and can work with minimal supervisio ... n. He'd make any project stronger overall and see to its completion.
