I'm a 3rd-year PhD student in the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida.
Last summer, I was a research associate at The Topos Institute.
I graduated with my Bachelor's in Computer Science from the University of Kentucky in 2021, summa cum laude.
I received my Bachelor's in Computer Science at the University of Kentucky (UK) in May, 2021. While at UK, I completed an internship and a co-op, both at the intersection of Hydrology and computer science. Before the March 2020 travel ban with Europe, I was briefly an exchange student in Berlin. After graduating, I completed an internship via the DoD's HPC Modernization Program, working on Computer Vision tasks. My professional experiences have inspired me to study under Dr. James Fairbanks to explore how the field of Applied Category Theory (a collection of useful abstractions for computer scientists and mathematicians) can improve simulations in hydrology and other disciplines at large scale. At Lawrence Livermore National Lab, I performed Opinion Dynamics and computer science research. My most recent internship was with The Topos Institute, where I implemented the 3D Discrete Exterior Calculus for use in Multiphysics Simulations. I am currently collaborating with Space Weather experts to produce models of the ionosphere.
