I'm a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University at Buffalo. My research interests are in developing robust and reliant mobile, cyber-physical, and mixed criticality systems, particularly for robotics and computer vision applications.
I graduated from Brandeis University with a degree in computer science in 2017.
