About Me


I'm a first year Masters in Computer Science student at Stanford University. My core specialization is in Artificial Intelligence, however topics in machine learning and security are also of interest to me.

Prior to starting my Masters, I was an undergrad at the University of California, Berkeley. I conferred my Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in May 2017. At my time in Cal, I engaged in security research in Prof. David Wagner's spear phishing group.
