I am a Research Assistant and recent graduate of the Stevens Institute of Technology, where I completed a Master of Science in Financial Engineering (May '19) in Hoboken, NJ.

As a Research Assistant in the Sensorimotor Control Lab, I work on developing lower-arm Neuroprosthetics for patients with late-stage Parkinson's Disease.

I am an alumni of the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington (UW) where I graduated with a BBA in Finance and Business Economics (2017) in Seattle, WA.

In the past, I have worked on projects at the Hanlon Financial Systems Laboratory, the UW Hyperloop Team, UW Hackers, the Foster Finance Association, and the UW CubeSAT Team, among other things.
