I received my B.S. degree in electrical engineering with high honor from Michigan State University in 2015. For past, present, and future pursuits I have been awarded a Goldwater Scholarship, Churchill Scholarship, and NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. In my undergraduate career, I performed research on dynamic functional connectivity with Michigan State University’s Selin Aviyente and sparsity-promoting optimal control with the University of Minnesota’s Mihailo Jovanovic. Additionally, I competed on the MSU Swimming & Diving Team for four years and was a two-time team captain. I am currently pursuing a MPhil of Engineering at the University of Cambridge in the Computational and Biological Learning Lab.
