I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland in the computer science department, performing research with Tom Goldstein.

I’m currently interning at Pinterest and in the summer, I’ll be working down the block at Airbnb as a Kleiner Perkins Engineering Fellow.

In the past, I’ve been an intern at Microsoft, where I worked on confidential compute, an intern at Blackfynn, and an intern at a cancer genomics lab. I’ve TAed for algorithms, reinforcement learning, and machine learning.
