I am pursuing a Ph.D. in the Harvard Biophysics Graduate Program with Florian Engert, researching innateness in neurodevelopment and AI (2018-TBD). In summer 2021, I was a NeuroAI Scholar at CSHL with Tony Zador and Alex Koulakov.

I am passionate about how theory can accelerate neurodevelopment research, and how neurodev and neuroevolution can inform machine learning and neuroscience models. I have organized two workshops on the topic, one at Cosyne 2023, and an internal event at Harvard in May 2023.

I received my B.S. in Physics from the University of Notre Dame, where I worked with Zoltán Toroczkai on distance-based network models of brain connectivity (2013-2017).
