I solve real world problems with machine learning.
Masters in Computer Science from UIUC
Specialization in applied machine learning, ML-ops, and distributed ML training.
Expected grad May, 2023.
National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)
Research Assistant, Oct 21-Present.
Funded by the NSF & IBM Research.
I implemented distributed ML training on a GPU supercomputer (25 Nvidia DGX nodes, 200 A100 GPUs) to scale up the research of domain experts in biology and physics.
Internship at IBM Research, May – Aug ’22.
AI Foundation Model training, dataflow optimization. Based in historic Yorktown, NY.
Sarcos Robotics – Advanced exoskeletons
Machine Learning R&D Intern
Built machine learning vision segmentation models running on edge computers (Nvidia Jetson on-robot) including sensor fusion with depth sensing cameras to understand 3D scenes in pixel-per-pixel segmentation, at 100+ FPS, for highly accurate robot planning.
3x NASA Software intern for Autonomous Systems
Focused on OpenCV, 3D point clouds (RGB-D), and parallel computing.

Tools for Thought
Learning means forming a compact representation of a concept and forgetting enables greater information density.
What is the future of books? How can we make learning cheaper and easier by design? Like with a mnemonic medium? How can I build on the best examples on the internet today?
Pianists at every level drill scales so they can think in higher abstractions while they play. But no knowledge worker I know deliberately practices their craft. I’m hoping to bridge this gap, to craft a nice workspace, to leave more mental space free to invent new ideas.
