I’m a machine learning Ph.D. student in the Neural Networks Research Group at UT Austin. I’ve also been a co-founder at Curvio and EffectCheck, and a quant/researcher at Lincoln Vale. I earned my BS and MS in Computer Science at Virginia Tech under my advisor Eli Tilevich.
This blog is for my personal musings and ideas. My technical blog is NashCoding. Cool projects can be found at my grad student page. You can email me at email@example.com. You can also follow me on twitter and fork me on github.
Below is a list of my academic publications.
