I am a PhD student under the advisement of Alejandro Riberio at the University of Pennsylvania in Electrical and Systems Engineering, where I obtained a BSE in Electrical Engineering from in Spring 2014. Currently, I am working in the area of distributed and stochastic optimization, in particular the development of quasi-Newton algorithms for both settings. I have additionally worked in parallel on a project detailing the use of word adjacency networks to describe pieces of text for the subsequent use in authorship attribution related problems. We subsequently used this method to study cases of disputed authorship in the works of William Shakespeare. My research is discussed further in the Research section of this site. Additionally, authorship attribution software materials can be found in and Software/Materials section of this site.

The Publications section of this site lists and provides links for all journals and conference publications that I have coauthored.

A copy of my CV can be found here.
