I am a third year PhD student advised by Dr. Martine De Cock and Dr. Anderson Nascimento in the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Washington Tacoma. I am a Graduate Research Assistant in the Privacy-Preserving Machine learning group and will intern at JPMorgan Chase in summer 2023. I am broadly interested in Trustworthy Machine Learning. Currently, my research focuses on privacy-preserving machine learning and fairness in machine learning.
I earned my Masters in Computer Science & Systems from University of Washington Tacoma in 2020 with a thesis on privacy-preserving video classification that was nominated for the UW Distinguished Thesis award. I then briefly worked as a Research Intern at MILA under the supervision of Dr. Golnoosh Farnadi. Prior to starting at UW Tacoma, I spent a few years in the Nuclear Power Generation industry as an IT administrator after receiving my Bachelors from JawaharLal Nehru Technological University Anantapur in 2009.
When I am not working, I love to play with my 3 year old daughter. I love dancing and like watching movies of different genres.
