About Me

I'm in my final year of undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo pursuing Computer Science and Finance. I have interests in machine learning and data privacy.

I'm currently a research assistant under the supervision of Professor Gautam Kamath.


Upcoming research internship at at Nvidia AI lab supervised by Professor Sanja Fidler.



Previously I researched LiDAR compression methods with deep learning for autonomous vehicles at Uber Advanced Technologies Group supervised by Professor Raquel Urtasun.



I also have experience as a software engineering intern at Wish on the product web development team.



I was also a quantitative analyst at BMO Capital Markets where I created financial tools to analyze bond markets.

Aside from mathematics and computer science, I invest my time in basketball, track & field, weightlifting, chess, drawing, reading and poker.
