I graduated from Drexel University with a BS/MS in 2012. During my time there, I worked in the METlab as a research assistant. Currently I am a PhD student studying Machine Learning at the University of Pennsylvania.
I enjoy playing the guitar and violin, along with creating electronic compositions and remixing popular music. I also enjoy teaching, programming and game design. I am currently teaching an online class on rigid body physics.
