I am a fourth year graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles pursuing a PhD in applied mathematics.
I am advised by Professor Deanna Needell and Professor Andrea Bertozzi.
I advanced to candidacy in May 2022!
I am interested in research projects at the intersection of mathematics and computer science. I work on stochastic iterative algorithms, numerical linear algebra, and machine learning problems.
My goal is to apply mathematical techniques and develop algorithms that have a positive impact on the world.
During the summer of 2022 I interned at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab with Pieter Ghysels
and Xiaoye Sherry Li in the scalable solvers group. We recently submitted a manuscript on our work using randomization to speed up a hierarchically semi-separable matrix compression algorithm here.
I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland, College Park graduating with a dual degree in mathematics (with high honors) and computer science (with honors). My
first and second scientific posters. My pronouns are he/him.

Teaching

I strive to make the classroom a welcoming and accessible environment for students of all backgrounds.
