Acknowledgments
I really wish I could mention of all those that in some form or other have helpedthroughout this process called thesis. Yet, I will mention those who have been crucial:First of all, I want to thank my advisor Professor Saleha Jilani for believing in thisidea ever since I told her I wanted to write my thesis on this topic. Thanks for thepatience, valuable input and words of encouragement.Secondly, I want to thank Norm Medeiros for always being so willing to help mefind the necessary literature required to explore my thesis topic. Thanks for the endlessarticles, emails, meetings and moral support.Thirdly, I want to thank my awesome boss Aaron Smith in the AcademicComputing Center who was very supportive and understanding all throughout thisprocess. Thanks for not firing me after I would skip work at weeks at a time to work onmy thesis.Finally, I want to thank my family and friends because without them I would notbe here at the end of my college career writing a thesis about a topic that I have alwaysbeen passionate about. I love you all.
