I received the B.S. with Highest Honors in Applied Science and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill in 2013. While at UNC, I was an undergraduate researcher in the Optical Coherence Imaging Lab. I then spent a year as an Associate in Research in the DISP Lab at Duke University. Since 2014, I have been a graduate student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley, where I work with Associate Prof. Laura Waller. I earned my M.S. in Applied Science and Technology from Berkeley in 2016. As part of Laura’s group, I work with fellow graduate students and collaborators to explore new and novel ways of designing imaging hardware and reconstruction algorithms together, optimizing for performance, robustness, and cost.
Outside of research, I enjoy surfing, camping, woodworking, running, kitesurfing, and volunteering.
