About Me

I am a Doctoral student in the group of James Sethna at Cornell University. I was born and raised in Ashland, Missouri and completed my undergraduate study at the University of Missouri - Columbia.

My past projects include studies of Magnetism and Spin effects. More recently I have studied the model manifold of Deep Sigmoidal Networks and applications of Machine Learning (ML) to Stock Data.

Currently, I am working on applying ideas from dynamical systems theory to the Renormalization Group for the Non-Equilibrium Random Field Ising Model.

Upcoming projects focus on Plasticity, Surface Energies, Active Matter and applications of ML to Materials Databases.

I care deeply about the issues of Sustainability and encouraging Scientists to consider the Broader Impacts of their work on Nature and Society.
