Welcome to my personal website! I am fifth year PhD student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado - Boulder working with Stephen Becker. I focus on numerical optimization, inverse problems, and regression subject to uncertain data. I have a broad background in algorithms used for machine learning, signal processing, and physical simulations. Although this website is a work in progress, you can find information about my research including a few projects I’ve worked on over the years.
