I research theoretical machine learning. Specifically, I study the properties of representation learning, such as fine-tuning, multi-task, sample complexity, and computational considerations.
I completed a B.S. in applied mathematics and a B.S. in computer science at the University of Utah, advised by Prof. Jeff Phillips. My undergraduate research on bounding the VC-dimension of inflated polynomials, the Minkowski sum of a Euclidean ball and a polynomial, was recognized by the Computing Research Association with an Honorable Mention for the 2021 Outstanding Undergraduate Researchers award.
I also enjoy long walks, cooking, photography, reading, and magic tricks.
