I’m a PhD student in Applied and Computational Mathematics at Caltech, whose research is focused on designing computational techniques to solve large-scale linear algebra problems with applications in scientific computing and data science. My advisor is Joel Tropp.
I got my undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computing from the College of Creative Studies at UCSB, where I worked with Professor Shivkumar Chandrasekaran and the scientific computing group. I have had internships at Sandia National Lab, working with Ryan Sills, Don Ward, and Jonathan Hu; Lawrence Livermore National Lab, working with Andrew Barker; and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, working with Lin Lin.
I have been recognized for my work with the UCSB Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research, the UCSB Mathematics Department’s Raymond L Wilder Award, and finalist status for the Hertz foundation fellowship. I am supported by a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship.
