I'm an engineering research associate in the Poldrack Lab at Stanford University. My research interests are in the development and analysis of statistical machine learning techniques motivated by, and applied to various modern big data problems - including the analysis of large scale neuroimaging and genetics data. My CV is available here.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a PhD in Electrical Engineering advised by Joydeep Ghosh. My postdoctoral research is primarily with Russell A. Poldrack and Pradeep Ravikumar. I will be joining the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2016.

Interested in working with me?
