I live in in the Washington D.C area and study computer science at the University of Maryland. In the past, I interned at Airbnb AI Labs, Pinterest and Microsoft. During university, I organized travel for Bitcamp and created a class on reinforcement learning.

If you’d like to get in touch, my email is the first three letters of my first name (at) umd.edu.
