- Performing fundamental research in reinforcement learning and optimization.
- Spring '19: Head uGSI for Statistics 140: Probability for Data Science.
- Fall '18: uGSI for Statistics 140: Probability for Data Science.
- Spring '18: Head uGSI for Statistics 140: Probability for Data Science.
- Fall '17: Head uGSI for Statistics 134: Concepts of Probability.
- Spring '17: uGSI for pilot iteration of Statistics 140: Probability for Data Science.

- Working with < cloaked > in deployment of machine learning toolkits for alternative architectures
- Working under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin Brown at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Brown Lab)
- Focused on developing interpretable and explainable machine learning algorithms for analyzing high-dimensional scientific systems, such as genomics and agriculture.
- Worked with Ani Adhikari and Jason Zhang to develop and design curriculum for Statistics 140: Probability for Data Science.
- Co-wrote the prob140 library with Jason Zhang, a data science library geared toward probability theory written for Prob140 in Python. The library supports graphical visualization and computational tools for finite, infinite, joint, and continuous probability distributions as well as Markov Chains and other random processes.
- Prototyped and fleshed out labs, projects, and other instructional material
- Designed build system and pipeline for prototyping HW assignments and deployment to students
- Worked closely with Jupyter and Gradescope to optimize student submission of assignments
- Data Science Community Visualization for the Annual Ecosystem Report @ BIDS
- Applying unsupervised learning techniques to find graph clusters and identify communities of and topics in data science research.
- Managed the front-end development with D3.JS and AngularJS
- Responsbile for integration with internal pipeline through Flask, Mongo DB, and MySQL.
- Developing the backend for materials and datasets in use for the pioneering Data Science class (500 students)
- Responsibilities involved exploring appropriate datasets for course materials, running preliminary statistical analyses of datasets, designing examples to include in the textbook, Computational and Inferential Thinking, and developing exercises to include in practice sets or assignments.
