I am a mathematics and computer science PhD student at UIC who's currently seeking an internship for Summer 2022. I enjoy tackling new challenges by using teamwork and critical thinking, and I am always seeking new ways to grow.
8 years of Python experience, including in teaching, machine learning, research, and data analysis. Trained in scientific outreach and public speaking. Strong team worker and problem solver, adaptable leader, and always seeking self-improvement.
My studies in the US and UK have involved brand-new research in machine learning, while my work experience has involved making advanced technical subjects accessible and engaging to wider audiences.
2020 - 2025
Specializing in math of machine learning. Classes include advanced algorithms, theory of machine learning, statistics, & data science. Researched generative adversarial networks. Currently working on robustness and strategy in machine learning.
