CS PhD Student at The Ohio State University

Brief Bio

I study Computer Science at The Ohio State University, where my research broadly lies in High Performance Computing. Curerntly, I'm working as research assistant in the Network-Based Computing Lab , under the direction of Dr. Dhabaleswar K. (DK) Panda. Previously, I was a Master's Student in the Exasca||ab, headed by Dr. Barbara Chapman at Stony Brook University. I graduated from Stony Brook University in 2020 and in 2021 with a B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science, respectively.

During my undergraduate career, I did research in the COMPAS Lab (2018-2019), was a teaching assistant in the Stony Brook Computer Science department, and was snare-line section leader of the Stony Brook Marching Band Drumline from 2017 to 2020.

Whenever I have time, I like keeping my drumming chops up to speed, and I also can be found reading the occasional CS paper or being a nerd and enjoying tabletop RPGs.
