An overview of my research projects.

Why Research?

When I started college, I was pretty certain that I would end up in a CS office job. Yet here I am, deeply invested in a PhD. Each of my projects gave another window into the world of academia, and eventually I switched feilds to follow the work I found the most exciting.
