1st year phd student, budding researcher

About Me

I'm a 1st year phd student at Columbia university advised by Eugene Wu and Carl Vondrick. Previously, I was an undergrad at the University of Utah, majoring in computer science and finance. I was advised by Bei Wang for my bachelors thesis.


Research Interests

My main interest lies in in machine learning interpretability, computer vision and systems.


Life is never complete without hobbies for relaxation - I might be terrible (and my neighbours might hate me for it), but I love playing random tunes on the cello. Life can get tough, but there is nothing like a good hike in nature or staring at the stars to put things back in perspective. Catch me at the gym, and I'll never say no to a game of badminton or table tennis.
