Hello!

I am currently a second-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 computer vision and deep learning research.

During my undergrad, 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.
