A Little Bit about Nicole Tobias

me_knittedpiece me_jeff me_trevor_ada

  • Hometown/Family:: I am originally from good ol' Spartanburg, South Carolina. I have an amazing boyfriend/partner (Jeff), a crazy-fun rescued puppy (Ada), and an awesome eleven year old son (Trevor).

  • Education:: In 2006, I graduated from Paul M. Dorman High School. I then attended the University of South Carolina at Upstate, where I received a B.S. in Mathematics (December 2009) and a B.S. in Computer Science (May 2010). I completed my M.S. in Computer Science from Clemson (December 2012). Now, I am a Computer Science PhD student at Clemson University, with a focus in Remote Debugging in Wireless Sensor Networks and Time Keeping in Energy Harvesting Systems.

  • Activities:: I enjoy most everything from watching movies, relaxing with friends and/or family, cooking, and crafting (sewing and knitting) to camping, fishing, hiking, and white water rafting. Over the last several years, I have become a prolific and passionate knitter -- and I love everything about this fiber craft and many others. It is a great stress reliever and you will find me with needles/yarn in hand EVERY chance that I get!

  • Interests:: Education, Wine, Mathematics, Computer Science, Embedded Systems, Biometrics, Robotics, Knitting, Crochet

  • TV shows/movies:: I am a movie buff and am always up for a good comedy/action. If I had to choose one favorite movie, I would have to say Forest Gump... (Don't hate- that movie is classic!) -- A super close second favorite of mine would have to be The Usual Suspects. My Favorite TV show of all time is, without a doubt, The Golden Girls! :) ... but I have to at least mention that I also really like Star Trek (TOS and TNG) as well.
