Engineer | Researcher | Student
I’m pursuing a BS in Computer Science with threads in theoretical computer science (“Theory”) and human-computer interaction (“People”) at Georgia Tech where I also conduct computer security research under Prof. Wenke Lee. In addition, I’m an electrical and software engineer on the RoboJackets RoboNav Team.
In addition to my professional pursuits, I’m quite interested in privacy and civil liberties issues, cultural studies, category theory, cyberpunk and postmodern media, world cuisines, 3D printing, writing, and martial arts.

I graduated from Queens High School for the Sciences, a specialized STEM high school in NYC, in June 2019. There, I was the Chief Trainer (Head TA) for QHSS Math Research, the CTO of STEMinism, the founder and captain of the robotics team, the founder and captain of Team Cyber and the Da Vinci Experiment, and a member of Urban Sketchers. Outside of school, I freelanced, conducted research under Prof. Ramesh Karri at NYU CCS, and completed a hardware engineering internship at Vengo Labs (Recommendation Letter). I notably worked on the QHSS Math Research Repository (Examples: Ridge Regression, Deep Learning) and a conveyor belt at Vengo Labs along with other projects featured on my GitHub.
