Research interests:

I am from Chevy Chase, MD. I received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012 and worked as a software development consultant before coming to Michigan in the fall of 2016 to study robotics. I work in Professor Cynthia Chestek's lab and am interested in using machine learning algorithms to improve neural decoding and shape the future of rehabilitation devices such as active prosthetic limbs, exoskeletons, and FES systems.
