I am an electrical engineer by training and a theoretical neuroscientist by vocation. I did my undergrad at Rice during which time I worked on things like terahertz optics, radar, smart contact lenses, and self-driving cars. I also developed an interest in neuroscience through Jacob Robinson, Caleb Kemere, and others in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department who are trying to understand the brain. I joined Jacob’s lab my sophomore year and we worked on building tools for experimental neuroscience. I also remember going to a lecture by Bruno Olshausen, who was visiting from Berkeley and who came to talk about sparse coding models and vision. That had no small hand in me landing at Berkeley in 2015 to start a PhD and I joined the Redwood Center the following year. I graduated in December 2020 and am sticking around to wrap up a couple projects.
I’m a musician and lover of music, from The Flecktones to Mahler and everything in between. I also think skiing is awesome and that taking photographs is the best way to recharge my battery, along with a good nap.
