I am a Ph.D. student at the UMass Amherst College of Information and Computer Sciences.
My current work focuses on developing time series analysis techniques to exploit patterns in mobile device usage.
I graduated with a B.Sc. with Honors in Computer Science at the University of Alberta in 2011, where my studies were focused in both neuroscience and computer science. I worked at the SCOPE Neuroscience Lab under the supervision of Prof. Florin Dolcos, studying the neural correlates of human social interaction behavior using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques. In 2014, I worked at Tyco International as a data analytics intern. Last summer, I was a research intern at Qualcomm. Pinar Ozisik is also in my lab.
My main research interests involve time series analysis of continuous data streams, and using machine learning techniques to improve security in technology.
