I am a mathematician working as a research scientist for the U.S. Department of the Navy. I develop algorithms and methods that advance the science of autonomy, particularly automatic target recognition (ATR).

My academic background is numerical methods and optimization, with applications to machine learning. In 2013 I was awarded a U.S. National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. I spent the Fall of 2015 collaborating with scientists at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, thanks to a Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) award from the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Research Council of Norway. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Georgia Tech in 2017.

I have patents pending in autonomous vehicle fleet design and management.
