I am a fourth year PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University advised by Todd Murphey. I am part of the Interactive and Emergent Autonomy Lab, where our research focuses on computational methods in data-driven control, information theory in physical systems, and embodied intelligence.

I recieved my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 2016 and my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2018. I was also awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship in 2018.

I am interested in algorithmic design of robots for embodied intelligence and methodologies for autonomously identifying and exploiting emergence in collective systems. You can download my CV here.
