I am a theoretical computer scientist, mathematician, programmer, teacher, musician, and puzzle maker.
I graduated in August 2015 with a Masters in Computer Science from University of California - Santa Barbara, working on cryptography projects with Stefano Tessaro. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science with a double major in Discrete Math & Logic from Carnegie Mellon received in May 2014 with honors.
Post-graduation, I worked for a year and a half as a trader at Charlesworth Research before transitioning into a teaching position at the University of Illinois - Chicago, where I taught courses in their Summer 2016, Fall 2016, Spring 2017, and Summer 2017 terms.
I'm currently working at Scientific Games as an engineer on their Math Test team; my job involves analyzing the math of upcoming games to make sure they meet jurisdictional standards and simulating them with C++ code to make sure the theoretical math is correct.
