While studying Computer Engineering at the USAF Academy I focused on embedded systems. After graduating in 2016, I completed a MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University, where I focused on Artificial Intelligence, modeling, and decision support systems. I then spent several years working as an engineer and technical program manager at the Defense Digital Service and then AFCYBER. I am currently instructing at the US Air Force Academy, where my interests include complex systems, modeling, and cyber-physical devices.
