I am a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon University, where I studied statistics/machine learning and computer science as an undergraduate student. Along the way, I interned at Intuit Data Platforms, Amazon AI Labs, and Fulcrum GT Startup Labs.
At CMU, I was a TA for ML 10-315 (Introduction to Machine Learning) + CS 15-122 (Data Structures), research assistant, and a multiple hackathon award winner.
Bringing ideas to life excites me. I have compiled a comprehensive analysis of my personal journal, built a proof-of-concept knowledge graph of the 2017 political landscape, coded a Messenger-based political assistant bot.
Shipping thoughtfully designed and well-tested code is something I aim to continually do. I love the feeling of accomplishment earned from solving challenging problems and using my skillset to help others.

These days, I enjoy daily journaling, digital photo/videography, and long-distance running. In my free time, I like to dance, read, and hack. I also dabble in a bit of guitar and am a professional tennis player, who often merges dreams with reality.
A wonderful friend once said, "There are so few things in life that I find as beautiful as meaningful connections with other people," and I wholly agree.
