I am a 1st year PhD student working with Shyam Gollakota on wireless systems and the Internet of Things in the Networks and Mobile Systems lab.

I earned my Bachelors degree with high honors in computer science and digital arts from Dartmouth (2015) where I did some work on wireless networks and robotics. After that I spent a year wrangling distributed systems at Microsoft.
