I'm finishing up my dissertation and looking for what's next! (Open for jobs!)

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am working with Dr. Vikas Singh on machine learning and computer vision projects, some in collaboration with the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center to develop methods for analyzing preclinical datasets.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in 2014, and my master's degree in Computer Science at UW-Madison in 2016.

For a take away, check out my Résumé/CV.

Some recent news and travel:

My paper on Discrete Optimal Transport was accepted (top 25%!) to ICLR 2023.
I participated in a one-month Interpretability Experiment at Redwood Research.
I traveled to and presented my recent work on efficient unlearning at CVPR 2022 in New Orleans, USA.
