I am a Visiting Scholar at Tufts University working on numerical methods for liquid crystal modeling and electron absorption in photovoltaic cells. Additionaly, I serve as a Computational Scientist at Street Contxt developing large-scale machine learning algorithms and statistical methods.

I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Tufts University in May, 2015. My advisors were Professors Scott P. MacLachlan and James H. Adler. My dissertation focuses on computational methods for liquid crystal simulations.

I earned my Master's degree in Mathematics from Boston College as well as an MBA. Additionally, I obtained my Bachelor's degree at Boston College with a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science.
