I am a PhD student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. Advised by Stuart Russell, I work with the Center for Human-Compatible AI to help ensure that increasingly powerful artificial intelligence systems are robustly beneficial. I am grateful for the support of a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship.
In high school, I began working with Katy Börner and the Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center of Indiana University in collaboration with Stephen Kobourov of the University of Arizona. As an undergraduate, I worked with Peter Mucha in the Carolina Center for Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics, Kris Hauser in the Intelligent Motion Laboratory, and Carol Arnosti in the Arnosti Lab.
