About me

I am a Doctoral Student at the University of Iowa Computer Science Program working under Dr. Suely Oliveira. My research interests are in the fields of Parallel Computing, Scientific Computing, Software Engineering, and Machine Learning. More specifically I focus on the application of neural networks and their theoretical optimization. This in turn allows me to get a better understanding of adversarial networks, by knowing how these networks are being used and how they function, how can attack them? 

Currently, I am interested in better understanding the uses of Neural Networks and transitioning to adversarial networks. I am also interested in the parallelization of Generative Adversarial Networks for faster data generation. 

Previously I have worked at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) conducting different types of research. My main goal moving forward is to work with ML methods and help scientists better build neural networks for high-impact software and help individuals better understand data.

I have a BS from CUNY Lehman College and an AS from Dutchess Community College.
