Hi there! I have a B.A. in Jazz Studies (with an emphasis in bass performance and composition) from UCLA and a B.S. in Computer Science from UCF. I am passionate about deconstructing complex problems and finding efficient solutions to them, and particularly enjoy doing so with code.
I'm a five-time NASA intern (four at KSC and one at GSFC), where I worked on many diverse projects, ranging from software development to support the Launch Control System (which will be used to launch the SLS rocket for the Artemis programs), to supporting research efforts in flexible aerospace structures and robotic excavation, to building data pipelines for machine learning that will enhance observation efficiency in spacecraft.
I'm also a two-time Google intern. In the summer of 2021, I was a remote intern and worked on a project that improved the quality of video search/ranking. In the summer of 2022, I was onsite at Google NYC and worked on a project to extract the read functionality for reading from the canonical store of Geo data into a standalone microservice.
I'm currently living in Brooklyn, NY, but am a native of Los Angeles, CA. In my free time, I like to play basketball, rock climb, play/listen to music, go hiking/camping/backpacking, play video/board games, and read about space/tech/science/engineering/CS.
