I'm a second-year MS/PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I'm currently a member of the Computer Vision Laboratory. I'm highly interested in computer vision, machine learning, and natural language processing research. I obtained my B.S. in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of West Florida, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in spring 2017.
As of Summer 2018, I'm researching computer vision techniques for fine-grained visual categorization of animals at the species level and individual level. I'm also investigating the generation of open-ended descriptions of textures in images using deep representations. My research advisor is Subhransu Maji.
I'm looking for potential research internship opportunities in computer vision and machine learning. Feel free to view my CV linked in the sidebar!
Aside from research and taking classes, I enjoy playing my flute, taking care of my cat, eating food, and going to rock concerts.
