I am a recent graduate of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where I received a Bachelors degree in Computer Science. My interests include programming languages, static analysis, compilation, functional programming, and natural language processing. For my senior project I created a racket library offering cross-platform bindings to OpenFST, which I still maintain.

I work as a compiler engineer at NVIDIA on the team responsible for NVVM. I’ve previously interned for Dropbox and Rosepoint Navigation Systems. Outside of work I enjoy hiking, backpacking, swimming, and cycling.

I have not updated this website since the summer of 2022
