Hello! I am a 6th 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 currently looking for jobs in industry, to start after May 2018.
