Computer science researcher living in Lafayette, IN. I am currently a PhD student at Purdue University, where I do research with Tianyi Zhang.

I was most recently employed as a software developer at Holos, Inc. My primary interests are in programming languages, computer graphics and machine learning.

In the past I was at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in the position of Assistant Staff. While there I primarily focused on embedded systems development, computer networking and graph theory research. I left this position in early 2019.

Areas of Expertise: Programming Language Theory, Computer Graphics, Embedded Systems Programming, Concurrent Systems, Graph Theory, Computational Geometry, Simulation and Game Development, Mathematics
