I am a graduate student in Neurobiology and Behavior at Columbia University under the supervision of Frank Wood and Liam Paninski in the Department of Statistics. I am part of the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience here at Columbia, a wonderful group of people building new mathematical models of neurons and neural networks.

My research focus in the Wood group is on nonparametric Bayesian modeling and inference. We are interested in many application areas, including text modeling, neural data analysis, and connections to biological neural computation.
