I'm a third year undergraduate at MIT studying Computer Science. I'm most interested in machine learning and security. I currently work in the Gifford Lab and the MÄ…dry Lab in CSAIL. I previously interned at Google Brain (summer 2017) and Apple (summer 2016).

At MIT I play for the Simmons intramural soccer team and the Baker intramural dodgeball team. I used to organize HackMIT and help out in USAGE.
