I'm a first 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 Fall 2017, I'm researching computer vision techniques for fine-grained visual categorization of animals at the species level and individual level. My research advisor is Subhransu Maji.
Aside from research and taking classes, I enjoy playing my flute in the UMass Concert Band, taking care of my cat and guinea pig, eating food, and going to rock concerts.
