About me

Hi, I’m a first year PhD student in the computer science department at USC. Most of my current work is in machine learning, but I’m broadly interested in theoretical computer science.

Previously, I’ve worked at Boston College as a research associate and in industry as a quantitative researcher. Before then, I studied math as an undergrad, with an interest in the topological and category-theoretic side of things.

Always happy to connect and talk about ideas in computer science, math, and beyond!
