I am a 3rd year Computer Science PhD student at University of Maryland, College Park, working on ML research in Professor Tom Goldstein’s Lab. My research interests are in various Machine Learning topics, particularly NLP. Additionally, I earned my Masters in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park in 2023.

Prior to UMD, I graduated from Williams College in 2019 with Honors in Mathematics. At Williams, I wrote my thesis on graph theory under Professor Pamela Harris, which lead to a publication in Graphs and Combinatorics. After Williams, I worked as a Data Scientist for Booz Allen Hamilton, where I worked on projects of various topics including math modeling and machine learning.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, playing sports, cooking, baking, and board games.
