Adventures in Deep Learning, Robotics, and Biology



I am a PhD Student in Computer Science at University of Colorado Boulder. My work is in the fields of interactive deep learning, information visualization, human-robot interaction, and reinforcement learning.

I am co-advised by Daniel Szafir (IRONLab) and Danielle Szafir (VisuaLab). Additionally, I have been working on small projects with Daniel Larremore (BioFrontiers).

I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2015 with a triple major Bachelor’s of Science in Applied Mathematics, Neuroscience & Cognitive Science, and Molecular & Cellular Biology. I worked as an undergraduate research assistant in many labs, ranging from aerospace engineering and bioinformatics to neuroimmunology and yeast genetics. I received the University of Arizona’s prestigious Centennial Achievement Award, am a NASA Arizona Space Grant Consortium alumni, and studied abroad in Sendai, Japan at Tohoku University.


After studying abroad in Japan, I became addicted to travel. I was fortunate enough to travel more than 35 countries over the course of my undergraduate degree, which included working on farms, sleeping couches, and solo-trekking through the Himalayas, the Andes, and other various mountain ranges around the world.
