About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Northwestern University. I am pursuing a PhD under Professor Fabián Bustamante as a member of AquaLab. I received a Master of Science degree in Computer Science in fall of 2013 and a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering with a minor in Japanese Language and Culture from Northwestern University in spring of 2009.

I love listening to and playing music. I play a few instruments fairly well (percussion, drums) and abunch not well at all.


I've loved playing the sport since I was very young. My parents say the first clue was when noticed a little kid with volleyball pads on his feet attempting to skate around the kitchen with a makeshift stick. Goaltender has been my preferred position since about 10 years old.


I love playing racquetball and I'm always looking for other people that want to play!
