I am a fifth year graduate student in the Mathematics Department at UC Davis, working under the advisorship of Zhaojun Bai.

My general research interests are convex optimization, nonlinear programming, and optimization applications including image segmentation, model predictive control, signal processing, and machine learning.

My dissertation research is on an eigenvalue optimization method for phase retrieval. See the Research Projects tab for more details and a link to my GitHub page.

When I'm not programming or studying, you can find me reading (e.g., The Expanse and Stormlight Archive), running, cooking, listening to podcasts (e.g., This American Life, StartUp, RadioLab, TED Radio Hour), or brewing beer.
