I am currently a PhD student at the University of California, San Diego studying computer music. I am jointly advised by Miller Puckette (music) and Julian McAuley (computer science). My main research focus is machine learning for music information retrieval and audio signal processing.
In 2013, I received a BS in computer science from the Turing Scholars Program at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2016, I received an MA in computer music from UCSD.
