I am working on innovating user interactions and virtual reality (VR) mechanics aimed at enhancing the training programs for the USDA Forest Service. This may involve creating tools to assess timber merchantability or developing various immersive virtual environment effects that simulate intricate details of forest activities.


I'm a Computer Science grad student at UW-Madison with interests in machine learning and game development. I like to think of myself as an explorer, always seeking new experiences and perspectives rather than just a traveler. Beyond my studies, I'm an avid enthusiast of movies, TV series, and various facets of pop culture.
