Biography

I am a fourth year PhD student in the University of Michigan’s electrical engineering and computer science department. The topic of my dissertation is stochastic computing, a field which sits at the intersection of computer hardware design and artificial intelligence. Computers and brains work very differently, and stochastic computing asks the exciting question “What can be gained if we change a computer’s building blocks to behave more like the brain’s most basic components?” Exploring this engaging question drives my desire to pursue a career in academia where I endeavor to become a computer science professor.

On this site you can find more information about me or view my blog on computer science, running and other ventures. More website sections are planned such as publication and projects pages which are coming soon. Come by once in awhile to see what’s new and enjoy your stay!
