Generically, my research tends to be a combination of transfer learning, self-supervised learning, and generalization. Descriptively, I’m motivated by the problem of maximizing performance given a new (typically small) dataset such as one might encounter in the wild. See my Current Projects tab for what I’m working on now and my Publications tab for past work.

I am advised by Dr. Bharath Hariharan from the Cornell CS Department. My undergraduate studies were at the College of San Mateo and University of California: Santa Barbara. During the two-year gap between UCSB and Cornell, I performed research with Dr. Paul Atzberger (see my Publications section) and did a year-long internship at the biotechnology startup Vium. In addition to my research at Cornell during my PhD, I’ve also worked in the Financial Engineering team at Bloomberg LP and interned at Salesforce Research working with Devansh Arpit.

I am defending my thesis this fall and will be joining Salesforce Research’s AI for Society team as a Research Scientist starting in January.
