I am currently a first-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland at College Park. In May 2019, I earned my bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College. I am interested in planning algorithms and problems arising from multi-agent coordination and communication.
In the past, I was part of AMISTAD Lab where I studied notions of algorithm capacity and dataset complexity with Prof. George Montañez. I was also part of a neural networks research group exploring programming language translation under the guidance of Prof. Robert Keller.
In my free time, I enjoy running, building physical computing projects, and developing apps for iOS.

I developed experimental software to turn AR-enabled iPhones into 3D-scanners. Here's a point cloud of a full-size pickup truck captured with my iPhone 7:
I recently wired and wrote software for a 32x32 LED matrix that accurately displays time, local weather, and a recent news headline. It uses an Arduino Mega outfitted with an ethernet shield and is installed in my home:
