I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering at the University of Florida where I am a part of the RuizLab and the Data Science Research (DSR) Lab. I graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Florida Polytechnic University. From 2020-2023 I was a part of the Graphics, Imaging & Light Measurement Laboratory (GILMLab) at UF. During this period I worked on a research project that uses generative adversarial networks (GANs) to model 3D motion and behavior from videos for applications in biomedical research.

During my undergraduate years, I was a member of the Rhinoplasty Research Group at FPU, whose main goal is to apply novel computer science methodologies to the field of rhinoplasty. I worked on numerous research projects with this team, including performing a systematic review of rhinoplasty literature and developing a web interface for analyzing 3D models of the human face. I have worked on several personal projects as well.
