About Me

I am a PhD student in Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, advised by Xiaojin (Jerry) Zhu. Currently, I am studying adversarial attacks on various learning regimes as well as applications of information geometry to modern learning theory.

My bachelor's degree is in mathematics with a minor in computer science from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. My thesis was on algorithms for connecting mobile networks of sensors, advised by Volkan Isler.

Outside of academics I enjoy movies, hiking, gymnastics, and playing piano.

Here are some Notes for CS 730 (Nonlinear Optimization), optimization with a fairly geometric viewpoint. They're roughly up to date through lecture 19 of 36. I update them periodically, mostly as a hobby.
