me

I am a first-year Computer Science PhD Student at Northeastern University, where I am advised by Jonathan Ullman and Alina Oprea. I recently completed my B.S. in Pure Mathematics at Florida State Univerity and completed my undergaduate thesis under the guidance of Alec Kercheval and Nathan Crock.

My academic interests generally lie within the intersection of theoretical computer science and machine learning. I am also interested in differential privacy, computer vision, and algorithms. Last summer, I worked as a Software Engineer intern at Intuit, where I worked on new features for the Money by QuickBooks app.
