I'm currently a first-year PhD student in computer science at Harvard University, co-advised by Finale Doshi-Velez and Susan Murphy. I'm excited about developing reinforcement learning algorithms for meaningful applications, such as helping undergraduates manage stress and anxiety on a mobile health app. I am grateful for the support of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

I completed my undergrad at the University of Kentucky (2016 - 2019), where I worked on Cyber-Physical Systems with Simone Silvestri. I also participated in an REU at DePaul University and the University of Southern California and was named a Goldwater Scholar.

Physical Robot Assistance with Hair Brushing

As part of the 10-week REU program at USC, I was able to work with Dr. Stefanos Nikolaidis on a physically assistive robotics project. I worked on developing and implementing a hair brushing algorithm for post-stroke paralysis patients. Fortune Magazine covered our demonstration at NeurIPS 2019 here!
