I am a fifth year Ph.D. student at the University of Washington's Electrical Engineering department working in the Signal, Speech and Language Interpretation Lab.

Before grad school I worked at the CMU Biometrics Center as research staff and interned on the Google Android face recognition team. I was an undergrad at Carnegie Mellon with a BS in Computer Science and a BS in Mathematical Science.
