I'm a first year Ph.D. student in computer science at CU Boulder. My research interests are in complex adaptive systems, unconventional models of computing, and multi-agent control. I'm part of the CS Theory group here at CU and my advisor is Professor Joshua Grochow. Before coming here, I completed an M.S. in applied math and worked with Professor Robert Kozma as part of the Biologically Inspired Neural and Dynamical Systems Lab at UMass Amherst. During that time, I also worked as a graduate IT assistant in the department of mathematics & statistics. My undergraduate degree is also from UMass, where I majored in pure math with a minor in philosophy.
