I'm a 4th year PhD student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS-Course 6) and the Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT working under the supervision of Professor Gerald Jay Sussman. My research is in the area of Artificial Intelligence, where I am working to help autonomous vehicles (and other autonomous machines) to explain themselves.

Before returning to academia, I worked at Palo Alto Research Center as a Member of Technical Staff where I worked on anomaly detection in healthcare. I received an M.S. in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, where I interned at INRIA Grand-Est in Nancy, France and the Salesforce.com Data.com team on fraud detection in San Mateo, CA. I received a B.S. in Computer Science with Highest Honors, a B.S. in Mathematics with Honors, and a Music Minor at UC San Diego.
