This is me

In works of labour, or of skill,
I would be busy too;
For Satan finds some mischief still,
For idle hands to do.
- Isaac Watts

I’m a graduate student at The Wharton School, pursuing a PhD in Statistics and Data Science.

Before this, I worked full-time doing software engineering and computational cognitive neuroscience research at Penn’s Computational Memory Lab with Michael Kahana. While working for the lab I finished a part-time engineering Master’s in Data Science, which included a thesis supervised by Konrad Kording. I attended Penn for undergrad as well, majoring in Physics & Astronomy with a Concentration in Business and Technology, along with minors in English and Music.

I was drawn to statistics and machine learning through a desire to find my place in a world overwhelmed with data. There are many diverse problems I want to tackle (probably too many), but you can read a brief overview of my past research and current interests. I love to think about the world both experientially and mathematically, and earnestly believe we need both perspectives in order to have any idea what’s going on around us.

I am always excited to learn more or think about something new. Please shoot me an email or schedule a meeting if you’d be interested in chatting with me or maybe collaborating on a project!
