Mathematician and data scientist. Interested in topology, machine learning, their intersection, and opportunities for effecting social good.
LeapYear 2018-10-01 — Present
I work as a software engineer, implementing and developing differential privacy techniques.
Opendoor 2016-11-01 — 2017-6-01
I worked as a data scientist, analyzing housing data for price prediction and to understand human-machine interaction with predictive algorithms.
Grand Rounds 2015-03-01 — 2016-10-01
I worked as a data scientist, cleaning, organizing, and analyzing a variety of medical-related data sources in order to try and understand the relationships between physicians, patients, conditions, and medical institutions.
Mills College 2017-01-01 — 2017-05-01
I taught an upper-division Computer Science course on Machine Learning.
General Assembly 2016-04-01 — 2016-06-01
I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the General Assembly Data Science course.
Code for San Francisco 2016-01-01 — 2016-05-01
I was the Lead Data Scientist for the Data Science Working Group at the Code For San Francisco chapter of the Code For America. We provide resources and assistance to other projects in the chapter that require data analysis and visualization, as well as providing a collaborative learning environment.

Persistent homology for metric measure spaces, and robust statistics for hypothesis testing and confidence intervals 2014-04-02
We studied distributions of persistent homology barcodes associated to taking subsamples of a fixed size from metric measure spaces. We showed that such distributions provide robust invariants of metric measure spaces, and illustrate their use in hypothesis testing and providing confidence intervals for topological data analysis.
Isoperimetric inequalities for wave fronts and a generalization of Menzin's conjecture for bicycle monodromy on surfaces of constant curvature 2011-04-19
We proved generalizations of the isoperimetric inequality for both spherical and hyperbolic wave fronts (i.e. piecewise smooth curves which may have cusps).
