Biography: I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Tufts University, where I was involved with the IEEE chapter, undergraduate research, Student Government Senate and the Tufts Robotics Club. I'll be pursuing a Master's in Electrical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Fall 2017. Prior to that, I'll be working as a System-on-Chip (SoC) Design Engineer Graduate Intern at Intel Corporation. I have gained extensive software and hardware development experience through internships at Aubot (Melbourne, Australia) and Dell-EMC (Hopkinton, MA).

At UW-Madison, I hope to tackle real-world challenges using tools that scale, particularly in areas such as digital systems, computer architecture and artificial intelligence. I received the Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowship which would provide me the flexibility to achieve this goal. It would help me leverage quality graduate research experience as part of the Wisconsin Computational Intelligence group with strong academic coursework, and I am excited for this opportunity.

I hope to work for an innovative technology company. I aspire to bring ideas to life in ways that create novel solutions to technical problems and make modern technology more accessible.
