I'm a second year computer science PhD student at Princeton University. My research interests broadly include continual/multitask learning, generative modeling, and distributed training of deep neural networks. Specific applications I've worked on in computer vision include autonomous driving and medical imaging.

Prior to Princeton, I completed a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, focusing on computer-aided diagnostics. I did my undergrad in mathematics at the University of Florida.

I'm supported by the NDSEG Fellowship.
