Operations Research and Information Engineering
Applied Probability and Statistics


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University. My Ph.D. advisor is David S. Matteson.

I received my B.S. in Mathematics, with a minor in Computer Science, from the University of Florida.


My research interest include time series, nonparametric statistics, and machine learning. My current research is focused on nonparametric methodologies for performing change point analysis of multivariate data. Change point analysis, which pertains to detecting distributional changes in time ordered observations, has applications in a variety of fields. Such fields include economics, finance, genetics, and medical diagnostics.
