Obligatory Hiking Photo

I am a recent graduate from the Applied Math group at UC Davis, working with professor Naoki Saito. My undergraduate was at UW Madison, where I studied mathematics, computer science, and physics. I grew up in the idyllic Rochester, Minnesota. My general research interests at this point are

My PhD dissertation was on understanding how to interpret classification of sonar signals using the scattering transform, both through theoretical analysis of the physical problem, and signal domain recreation of the used coefficients, in a similar manner to the circuits work for convolutional neural networks. I am currently on the job market, looking to use signal processing methods on net positive impact projects.

Less formally, I try to think about how we can use our roughly 80k workhours for good1, play board/video/tabletop games, attempt to read broadly, and generally eat the internet.
