I am a PhD precandidate in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I am working with Odest Chadwicke Jenkins in the Laboratory for Progress. My research involves artificial intelligence and robotics, specifically robotic manipulation through object affordances.

I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois with a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science, a Spanish minor, and completion of the Honors Program. As an undergrad, I participated in a number of research projects as well as summer research experiences involving autonomous cars and autonomous UAVs.

My goal is to become a computer science professor and inspire students from underrepresented groups to pursue research in STEM fields. I have previous work experience as a tutor and graduate student instructor.
