I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University.

My research interests revolve around Bayesian non-parametric modelling. Specifically, I am interested in Kernel methods and Gaussian processes. Other interests involve disentangled representations, reinforcement learning, and connections to Neuroscience.

Before coming to Cornell, I completed my MSc in Computational Statistics and Machine Learning at University College London, where I completed a thesis on intrinsically motivated curriculum learning via deep reinforcement learning supervised by Dr. John Shawe-Taylor. Previously, I completed my BSc in Computer Engineering at the University of Florida, where I studied applications of data science for healthcare with Dr. Daisy Zhe Wang. In the past, I've also had internships within the Computational Social Sciences group at Microsoft Research, the Grand Challenge group at Amazon, and the Tactical Defense Systems group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory .

I also enjoy jazz as well as some of its derivatives. Other interests.
