My name is Michael C. Hughes, but everybody calls me Mike.

I’m now a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard, in Cambridge, MA. Previously, I did my PhD in computer science at Brown University in Providence, RI. Before that, I did my undergraduate degree at Olin College of Engineering, in Needham, MA.

I'm originally from Billings, Montana.
