I am currently a PhD student with Dr. Robin Murphy at Texas A&M University.
My interests lay the intersection of machine learning and disaster response. Specifically, how to improve robustness and usability of automated systems in extreme environments.
I grew up in Las Vegas and I enjoy running, hiking, spending time outdoors and in my spare time I am also an Instrument Rated Commercial Pilot, Advanced EMT, and a Firefighter.
I graduated with my Masters from Carnegie Mellon's Language Technologies Insitutute and my Bachelors from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My educational background is in NLP and ML and my graduate research included collaborations with Bosch GmbH, DARPA, and Boeing.
After graduate school I joined Microsoft where I split my time between product focused ML teams and collaborations with groups like the CDC and the WHO in development of machine learning and data management systems to respond to disasters like the COVID-19 pandemic.Download CV
