About Me

I am a fifth-year PhD student in the EECS department at MIT advised by Professor Gregory Wornell. I received my M.S. degree in EECS from MIT in January 2022 and my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2019. My research interests are centered around the use of generative models and representation learning for solving problems at the interesection of neural compression, computer vision, information theory and signal (image/audio) processing.

Research Internship Experience

I have had the opportunity to complete multiple research internships in the past. Most recently, I worked on transformer-based video compression architectures with Dr. Fabian Mentzer on the Neural Compression Team at Google Research (see slides). I also worked with Dr. Qing He and Dr. Vimal Manohar at Meta AI in 2021 and 2022 respectively where I worked on speech compression and singing voice conversion with generative models. I have also interned with Dr. Jonathan Le Roux at MERL in 2019, where I conducted research on adversarial attack detection.
