I am a first-year Computer Science PhD Student at Northeastern University, where I am advised by Jonathan Ullman and Alina Oprea. I completed my B.S. in Pure Mathematics at Florida State Univerity and completed my undergaduate thesis under the guidance of Alec Kercheval and Nathan Crock.

My academic interests generally lie within the intersection of theoretical computer science and machine learning. I am also interested in differential privacy within the context of deep learning and the social implications of machine learning algorithms.

Last summer, I worked as a Software Engineer intern at Intuit, where I helped create new features for the Money by QuickBooks app.
