I’m a Ph.D. student at the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering. I work in the PLSE group on lightweight software verification. My advisor is Mike Ernst.

My current work is focused on building type systems on top of the Checker Framework to solve practical problems in software engineering.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing games, skiing, and sharing beverages with friends. Favorite games include Civilization, dungeons and dragons, and Dominion. Favorite beverages include tea and absinthe.
