I'm very passionate about research, especially in cognitive psychology and evolutionary biology.
I'm currently studying the spatial-relocation memory errors of young adults in regard to risks & rewards, for UCLA's departmental honors thesis in Dr. Alan Castel's Memory and Lifespan Cognition Lab, with Alexander Siegel, M.A. in UCLA's Department of Psychology.
Additionally, I'm working on large scale computational and machine learning models for better understanding fish evolution across the tree of life in Dr. Michael Alfaro's lab, with Liz Karan, in UCLA's Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB).
When not conducting ground-breaking research, my main interests include software development, full-stack web & digital/graphic design, and user-interface & user-experience development — all of which I sport 10+ years of experience in.
At UCLA, some current projects I've worked on include myEMRA®, a software I developed for UCLA Health, and QR Chem, a smart was to share and access 3D molecular structures. (Read Press Release and checkout the Publication in Nature Reviews Chemistry.)
I've developed some really cool stuff for some really cool people. Check out some of my work below.
