Graduate Work

University of Colorado, Boulder

Ph.D. Computer Science

I am currently a Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado Boulder. Advised by Dr. Orit Peleg, I study collective intelligence through a bio-physics approach. My specific research projects and thesis direction can be found here.

I am also a member of the Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology Certificate Program. This program supplements my research by forging cross discipline collaborations with experts in neuroscience, physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, etc.

Undergraduate Education

University of California, Irvine

Computational Environmental Sciences Laboratory

While obtaining my bachelor's degree in mathematics from UC Irvine, I participated in several extracurricular courses and groups to expand my knowledge of computer science and the math behind it. I was apart of the Campuswide Honors Collegium which required an honors thesis, attended theoretical mathematics seminars from the UCI math club, and enrolled in several research based classes covering topics from computational complexity to neural networks. I also worked at the Learning & Academic Resource Center as a tutorial leader for EngrMAE 10, Introduction to Engineering Computations with MATLAB.

Additionally, I was a researcher in the Computational Environmental Sciences Laboratory under the mentorship of Professor Donald Dabdub. Under his guidance, I wrote a paper quantifying the ozone weekend effect over time in Southern California.
