Personal Bio

Born and raised in South St. Paul, MN, I left for the University of Georgia for college in Athens, GA. I majored in mathematics (including a semester in Budapest) and computer science, and graduated into the covid lockdowns of 2020, where I started working full-time as a software developer. After a year of working, I left my job to begin a PhD at Stanford in 2021.

I married my wife Johanna in 2022 in the botanical gardens of Athens, GA.

Past Work

I interned at Virtu in summer 2023, working on several projects for the options prop market-making desk.

I interned at Amazon in summer 2022. My project improved the average delivery time of Amazon Air daily package flow plans by a significant factor.

I worked at Epic as a software developer on the central data science team. I was the developer lead for an infrastructure project to enable scalable system build analysis and automated recommendation generation for customers who wanted to improve the configuration of their installation of Epic.

I wrote my master’s thesis on convolutional neural networks for demosaicing. I built models that exploited redundancies across films / bursts of images to improve reconstruction quality. The thesis is available for download here.

In college I interned at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for a summer, where I worked on mapping out systemic vulnerabilities in the Fedwire settlement network. This work made it into a Fed report.

I spent a summer researching valuation models for options on volatility indexes with Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s financial mathematics REU.
