  • PhD Student, Stanford University
I’m a PhD student at Stanford studying applied math (ICME), advised by Professor David Lobell at the Center on Food Security and the Environment. My research uses modern data science techniques to map land cover/land use, especially related to agriculture and in settings where ground truth labels are scarce. Toward this end, I work with large-scale satellite imagery, develop machine learning methods for low-data regimes, and explore the use of non-traditional data sources for ground truth. For more details, please see my CV.
Prior to my PhD, I studied Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University, where I folded 3D shapes from DNA. I then worked in New York City post-graduation. Outside of research, I enjoy hiking, cycling, sketching, and reading books.
Interests. Remote sensing, machine learning, land cover/land use, sustainable development
