About me

Welcome to my webpage!

I am a second-year M.S. student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the computer science department. 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 I’m focused on using spiking neural networks for machine learning. I did my undergraduate studies at UMass Amherst with a double major in computer science and mathematics.

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 miniature Australian shepherd named Quinn.
  • I have an Erdös number of 2.
