In August 2021 I joined Adobe's Creative Intelligence Lab as a Research Engineer, where I continue to work at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and graphics.

From 2015 to 2021 I was a PhD student a TTI-Chicago advised by Gregory Shakhnarovich. In July 2021 I defended my thesis on optimization-based style transfer.

Before joining TTI-Chicago, I received my B.A. in Mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis, where I worked as undergraduate research assistant for Kilian Weinberger.
