I am a Hedrick Assistant Adjunct professor specializing in Programing in Computing. Before coming to UCLA I got my PhD in the Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computing program at the University of Maryland researching numerical methods, machine learning, and data assimilation in magenetohydrodynamics for the 3-m spherical Couette experiment in the Lathrop Lab. My advisors were Prof. Dan Lathrop and Prof. Kayo Ide. I've directed the Girls Talk Math summer enrichment program at UMD. I have been awarded the NSF Graduate Fellowship, the Wylie Dissertation Fellowship, the George A. Snow Memorial Award, the University of Maryland Women of Influence Award, the Ruth Davis Fellowship for Math and Physics, the Adele's Circle of Women Scholarship, and the AMSC Leadership Award.

I did my undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I graduated with honors with a B.S. in Applied Math and a B.A. in Physics. I participated in the 2014 and 2015 University of California at Los Angeles Applied Math REU. The year before graduate school, I was a post-baccalaureate student at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The fall 2019 semester I worked with Nathanael Schaeffer at the ISTerre in Grenoble, France.
