About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Computational Imaging Lab with Prof. Laura Waller in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. I work on developing computational imaging systems for microscopy applications as a part of the Berkeley Center for Computational Imaging (BCCI) and Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR).

I am a co-organizer for the BiasBusters @ Cal EECS program, a volunteer through EEGSA Outreach and Photobears, and an organizer for the 2017 Sculpted Light in the Brain conference held at UC Berkeley on June 9, 2017.

I graduated from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in May 2015. As an undergraduate, I worked as a technical intern at Sandia National Laboratories.

I am interested in the intersection of sensing hardware and computational system design, and how the two can be optimized together. I am particularly working with 2D & 3D Fourier Ptychography, optical forward models, and imaging through scattering media.
