I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley, advised by Jennifer Listgarten and Michael I. Jordan. I am a member of BAIR and work on statistical and machine learning methods for engineering biological systems. Prior to Berkeley, I was a Google AI Resident and also conducted marine biologging fieldwork with Kakani Katija at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Insitute. I received my B.S. in Computer Science in 2016 from Stanford University, where I was fortunate to work with Marius Cătălin Iordan, Fei-Fei Li, and Stephen Boyd. My work was generously supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Beyond research, I am an avid hiker, religious fan of artistic gymnastics, and proud mom to an extraordinary son.
