I am a research assistant in the Computer Vision Research Lab at the University of Notre Dame advised by Walter J. Scheirer.

In my work, I pursue three major goals: 1) designing and building models that perceive the world with consistency, a requirement for generalized artificial intelligence to operate predictably; 2) evaluating how to best measure generalization potential across different modalities; and 3) studying how biological and psychological knowledge can improve model design. In my research, I have utilized data modalities such as vision, acoustic, and text, and I have a background in various other research domains, such as classroom education and sentiment analysis.

I have successfully defended my dissertation and am on the job market.
