6th year CS PhD candidate working with the Computational Logic Center at the University of Iowa, advised by Dr. Aaron Stump. Research assistantship working on Cedille, an experimental dependent type theory.

Research interest is programming language theory, specifically (dependent) type theory, inductive definitions, recursion schemes, elaboration, and bidirectional type inference. Also interested in programming language semantics, including categorical and realizability. CV.
