Hello! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Computer Science Department and the Department of Engineering & Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University, co-advised by Zico Kolter and Inês Azevedo. I am also a co-founder and chair of Climate Change AI, an initiative to catalyze impactful work at the intersection of climate change and machine learning.
My work focuses on machine learning for forecasting, optimization, and control in high-renewables power grids. Specifically, my research explores methods to incorporate the physics and hard constraints associated with electric power systems into deep learning models. Please see here for a list of my recent publications.
I am a member of the MIT Technology Review’s “35 Innovators Under 35” 2021 global list, and am a 2022 Siebel Scholar. I was previously a U.S. Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow, an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, and a Thomas J. Watson Fellow. I received my undergraduate degree at Harvey Mudd College in computer science and math with an emphasis in environmental analysis.
