I am a fourth year PhD student in The Cake Lab @ Wπ working with Dr. Tian Guo. Prior to starting my PhD I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES (IBM) in Williston, Vermont as part of the ASIC Product Engineering team. I completed my Masters of Science in Computer Science at the University of Vermont in 2013, after having a dual Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and Pure Mathematics there in 2010.
My research focuses on enabling deep learning inference for mobile devices without retraining of models. The aim of this research is to enable mobile devices to make use of high accuracy models located either locally or in the cloud with minimal latency in a way that is transparent to end users and developers. This would benefit a wide range of applications by both expanding the ability of developers to use these models without retraining.
Beyond my research my main hobbies are rock climbing, running, traveling and eating.
