About

I am currently an undergraduate at Drew University, majoring in Computer Science and Philosophy, and minoring in Data Science. I help run the Drew Review as the Senior Corresponding Editor, work as a Programming Fellow and Tutor at the Center for Academic Excellence , and am researching Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning for my Honors Thesis. My passions in life revolve around research, design, quality engineering, and the creative applications of the former three to human contexts. I pride myself on my ability to approach problems in novel ways and draw from my multidisciplinary knowledge base to drive my design process.

Work

I have professional experience in software development, team management, independent research and visual design. My skills have been developed in my roles as a Software Development Intern at A Free Bird Corporation, Research Collaborator at the Digital Humanities Institute, and Creative Lead at TEDxDrewUniversity.
