WHERE I'M FROM

Wilsonville, Oregon

BEFORE VS

I majored in mathematics and minored in biology at Oregon State University.

WHY I’M HERE

I came to the VS program because of its interdisciplinary approach to research. Here, I can develop skills to become a more independent and successful researcher.

MY RESEARCH

I am interested in how the visual system interprets and infers the rich geometrical and statistical properties of natural scenes. I am also interested in solving problems in computer vision using information and techniques from computational neuroscience.

MY GOALS

I want to continue doing research in human and computer vision. I hope to contribute in some way to the education and development of future researchers.

MY HOBBIES

I enjoy playing golf, soccer, basketball and watching movies.
