I am an electrical engineering researcher and algorithmic coder interested in applied geometry/topology and multimedia data analytics, 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, and I received an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University in 2013. I am currently in the sixth year of my Ph.D., most of which was funded by a NSF Graduate Fellowship, and I am advised jointly by Dr. Guillermo Sapiro in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Dr. John Harer in the Department of Mathematics at Duke University. I am also quite interested in pedagogy, and I am a member of the College Certificate in Teaching (CCT) program at Duke. Last spring, 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 in "quality of course/intellectual stimulation" based on student evaluations.
