I am currently a rising senior pursuing a B.S. in Physics with minors in Mathematics and Computer Science at Norfolk State University. I have participated in several summer research programs that range from condensed matter physics to chemical engineering. I am interested in Artificial Intelligence research and how computers use advanced algorithms like deep learning to solve various tasks. My goal is to pursue a PhD in Computer Science where I can further explore the possibilities of deep learning and machine intelligence. My hobbies include working out, playing video games and participating in robotics competitions.
