I am a fourth 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. 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. I interned at JPMorgan Chase as an AI Research Associate in Summer 2023 and have been awarded 2023 JP Morgan Chase Fellowship to support PhD research on synthetic data generation. 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.
