Conrad received his BS in Computer Science from the University of Notre Dame in 2018. While there, he worked with the Cooperative Computing Laboratory to bring cloud functionality to WorkQueue: a framework for master-worker applications that can span thousands of cores. In 2017 he was selected as one of only ten students to participate in the inaugural Silicon Valley Semester program.
He explored finely tuned, parallel solutions for large-scale numerical methods and wrote a linear algebra library for Prolog during his internship. He has an affinity for system programming and tries to inflict his purist Linux ideologies on every piece of hardware he sees. When away from his keyboard, he loves to put the top down on his Volkswagen Cabrio and blast funk music.
