About Me

I am a first-year M.S. student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studying computer science. I'm particularly interested in machine learning (specifically deep learning) and computational neuroscience. I am employed as a research assistant in the Biologically Inspired Neural and Dynamical Systems Laboratory, where I'm developing the use of spiking neural networks for machine learning. I did my undergraduate studies at UMass Amherst with a double major in computer science and mathematics.

I come from Dartmouth, which is located in south-eastern Massachusetts, and I currently reside near the center of town in Amherst. I am an avid reader / writer / programmer, coffee lover, and proud co-owner of a miniature Australian shepherd named Quinn.
