Hello! I am a 5th year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am in the joint Machine Learning and Neural Computation Program. I am interested in developing machine learning techniques for analyzing neuroimaging data, specifically high-dimensional timeseries data such as MEG and EEG. Feel free to contact me and please check out my blog, where I discuss topics in machine learning and neuroscience as well as life as a graduate student. I am also the Vice President of External Affairs of the Carnegie Mellon University Graduate Student assembly, and the Vice Chair of Internal Communications for the Pittsburgh Student Government Council.
