About me

I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering co-advised by Professors Pat Pannuto and Ryan Kastner at UCSD. My research interests widely span across the vast area of Embedded Systems, but I have most recently been doing work around Heterogenous Computing and ML acceleration.

Before coming to UCSD, I received my BA in Computer Science at Northwestern University, where I worked with Josiah Hester on understanding the critical barriers between health wearable adoption for high-impact applications in low-SES communities.
