I grew up near Ithaca, New York, where I was home-schooled for elementary school, an experience that shaped my belief in the value of self-directed, intrinsically motivated learning. I went to college at SUNY Geneseo where I received a degree in Mathematics in 2014. I am currently working as a researcher at Silent Spring Institute in the greater Boston area.
The animation on the background of this site shows the generation of a graph by the Barabási–Albert model and represents my interest in the computer modelling of biological and sociological processes.
