I’m a second-year PhD student at Berkeley where I work with Bruno Olshausen at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. Prior to Berkeley, I spent four wonderful years at Rice where I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering and got the chance to work with some very smart people on tools for experimental neuroscience and next-generation radar, among other things. I’ve also had the good fortune to work outside of school on some fantastic teams on projects like smart contact lenses and self-driving cars. These days I spend my time thinking about theoretical neuroscience. I'm interested particularly in visual perception and am working on probabilistic graphics programs as a tool to uncover principles of hierarchical inference in cluttered visual scenes. My work is generously supported by the National Science Foundation and the University of California. I have a burgeoning appreciation for photography and a sampling of my own can be found here. Thanks for dropping by!
