About Me

Name: Vivek (Vick) Khera, Ph.D.

Wife: Adya V. Maniyar

Kids: 3 girls: ages 14, 13, and 9

Car: 2008 BMW 328i Convertible

Education: I am a graduated gradual student from the Computer Science Department of Duke University where I received my Ph.D. in 1994. My dissertation project was evaluating performance problems in NUMA shared memory multiprocessors. I received my BS in 1988 from the University of Maryland, College Park, and my High School diploma in 1985 from Richard Montgomery High School, in Rockville, MD. We had our 25-year reunion in August 2010... wow!

Work: Currently, I build and operate the MailerMailer email newsletter service using lots of (mostly) freely available technology.

Play: I tend to spend all of my free time playing with my daughters and wife.  I work out at a CrossFit gym a couple of times a week.  I enthusiastically recommend CrossFit to push yourself to your physical limits and have fun with great people at the same time.
