About me:

I am a PhD student at the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University working under the supervision of Professor Peter Kitanidis. My current work is on large-scale inverse problems that arise in subsurface imaging. Before moving to California, I received my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, Physics and History from Tufts University.
