Coming into college I knew that I was interested in studying math and getting involved in undergraduate research. I had the opportunity to work with Professor Drew in the Math Sciences Department my second semester freshman year and it was this research experience that led me to apply for the Accelerated B.S./Ph.D. Program.
As a participant of the program I was encouraged to learn more about the research being done by professors in my department and as a result began working with Professor Cheney in the Radar Imaging Group. I am grateful to have found an engaging area of research, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic advisor, and a dynamic research group.
I completed my senior thesis in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle flight path planning and graduated with my B.S. in Applied Mathematics in December 2009 after two and a half years. I spent this past summer at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory working as a summer researcher. Also I have completed internships at Deloitte and the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division.
I grew up in Crofton, MD and in my spare time I enjoy reading, playing bass, tennis, and fencing.
