I am a PhD student at the University of New Mexico, working with Dr. Lydia Tapia and Dr. John Wood on robotic learning and path planing. I earned a undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a minor in mathematics at the University of Tulsa. At the University of Tulsa I also completed a master in Computer science.
