I’m a Computing and Mathematical Sciences Ph.D. student in the Computational Vision Group at Caltech, advised by Dr. Pietro Perona. My interests tend to cluster around machine learning, computer vision, and signal/image processing. I’m supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
I’ll be spending summer 2019 at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA.
I graduated from Duke University in May 2017 with a B.S.E. in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mathematics. I’ve also spent time at the Air Force Research Lab, the Duke University Marine Lab, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Previously, I’ve worked on OCT imaging and image processing with Dr. Sina Farsiu, datacenter-level computational sprinting with Dr. Benjamin C. Lee, bioacoustic signal detection with Dr. Douglas Nowacek, environmental sensing with Dr. Martin Brooke, and oceanographic data analysis with Dr. Cindy Van Dover.
