About me

Welcome to my webpage!

I am a second-year M.S. student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the CS department. I did my undergraduate studies in computer science and mathematics, also at UMass. I’m interested in machine / deep learning and computational neuroscience, and how they might inform each other. I also like reading about computational complexity, statistics, causality, information theory, and parallel programming. I prefer writing code in Python.

I’m a research assistant in the BINDS lab, where we’re focused on using spiking neural networks for machine learning.

Please check out my CV for more details, and feel free to send me an email if you’d like to talk.

Fun facts:

  • I have a one-year-old mini Australian shepherd named Quinn.
  • I have an Erdös number of 2.
  • I played snare drum in the UMass marching band from 2012 - 2015.

News:

  • (5/21/18) I’m interning at HealthcareSource as a data analysis intern for the summer.
  • (3/15/18) Two conference papers accepted to IJCNN 2018!
