About me

I am a recent M.S graduate from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD), where I conducted research on recommender systems advised by Prof. John Dickerson.

I completed my undergraduate education at Princeton University, where I majored in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, with minors in Computer Science and Robotics. At UMD, I was funded by a GEM Fellowship with Amazon as my GEM employer sponsor. Through this fellowship, I completed two internships as an Applied Scientist Intern at Amazon Prime Video, where I worked on research projects aimed at improving personalized video recommendations.

I am broadly interested in applied research in machine learning, recommender systems, and multi-armed bandits.
