About me

I’m a recent college grad working as a research associate in the computer science department at Boston College. Most of my current work is in machine learning, but I’m broadly interested in theoretical computer science.

Previously, I’ve worked briefly in industry as a quantitative researcher and studied math as an undergrad, with an interest in the topological and category-theoretic side of things. Always happy to talk about ideas in math and beyond!
