UNC Chapel Hill

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests involve artificial intelligence and machine learning.

During my time as an undergraduate at Davidson College, I was fortunate enough to work on several research projects with Professors Raghu Ramanujan, Michelle Kuchera, Tabitha Peck, and Bryce Wiedenbeck. These projects included deep learning methods for nuclear physics applications, reinforcement learning for applications in virtual reality, and developing task-aware multi-task reinforcement learning agents (the focus of my undergraduate Honors thesis).
