    About

    I am a 1st year PhD student at UC Berkeley in vision and machine learning. I earned dual degrees in Computer Science (AI Concentration) and Psychology at UMass Amherst, where I was advised by Professor Learned-Miller and worked for the Computer Vision Laboratory. I participated in the NeuroCognition and Perception psychology lab too, as I am interested in how cognitive psychology and the neuroscience of perception can inform approaches in computational perception.
