I am a signal processing / data science / applied algorithms researcher with particular interests applied geometry/topology, multimedia signal processing, and academic open source software development. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow working under Dr. John Harer in the Department of Mathematics at Duke University, and I am part of the Information Initiative at Duke (IID).
I received a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering with a Computer Science minor at Princeton University in 2011, an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University in 2013, and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from from Duke University in 2017. As a Ph.D. student, I was advised jointly by Guillermo Sapiro and John Harer, and I was funded by an NSF Graduate Fellowship. I was also member of the College Certificate in Teaching (CCT) program at Duke. During spring 2016, I designed and taught a course on Digital 3D Geometry jointly in math and computer science as part of the Bass Instructor of Record Fellowship, and this course was rated in the top 5% of courses university wide that semester in "quality of course/intellectual stimulation," based on student evaluations.
