Howdy! I’m an undergraduate researcher at the UrbanResilience.AI Lab and a computer science student at Texas A&M University. This past summer I worked as a software engineering intern at Visa. My research interests include machine learning and network science. Aside from my time with computers, I enjoy volunteering for charitable organizations.
