I am a fourth-year PhD at the Network Science Institute of Northeastern University. My work has covered the future of small group interaction, and is currently focues on how automation and technology has and will change the skill requirements of employees in manufacturing. Here is my CV

In my free time I make videos on Instagram and TikTok about cycling and bike touring. I biked across the US from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast during Summer 2023.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with majors in Mathematics and Psychology and a minor in Computer Science. There I worked on modeling temporal Reddit data, modeling pedestrian walking paths, and visualizing and modeling data from a fleet of Fitbits.

Previously, I interned at Blackthorne Capital Management and Starkey Hearing Technologies. At Blackthorne, I was a software development intern working on a predictive analytics application built with Java's Eclipse Rich Client Platform. At Starkey, I was an iOS app development intern using Xamarin/C# with Starkey's suite of iPhone apps.
