I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland in August 2010. My advisor was David Mount. My current research is in the overlap of kinetic data structures and robust statistics. As a graduate student, I also worked on a project with Jeff Foster on tracking type qualifiers dynamically. I am an AT&T Labs Fellowship recipient. My mentor at AT&T is Aaron Archer and I worked with him on an implementation of Jain's algorithm for the survivable network design problem.
I am currently a software engineer at Google where I work on the indoor maps team.

Aside from Computer Science, I have an interest in Education and in addition to teaching at the University of Maryland while a graduate student, I taught middle school math for a year before graduate school. I am especially interested in education as it pertains to women in the sciences and other issues in diversity. I also enjoy African and Afro-Cuban percussion and Balinese gamelan (the picture to the right).
