I am a graduate student in computer vision and machine learning at MIT Media Lab, where I am advised by Professor Ramesh Raskar. My research interests are in learning meaningful, robust, and interpretable representations of data (especially visual data) that enable low-resource learning. Previously, I was a software engineer in the Alexa AI group at Amazon, and, before that, a research engineer at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where I studied machine learning and computer vision, and, in particular, their applications to medical images and human health.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from The University of Alabama, where I worked with Prof Travis Atkison. I have also been fortunate to work with Prof Polina Golland at MIT CSAIL on quantifying severity of pulmonary edema in chest x-rays and Prof Jeff Huang at Brown University on WebGazer.
