I am currently a 1st year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland at College Park. I earned my bachelor's degree in Joint Computer Science and Math 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 with Arduino, and developing apps for iOS.
