Short Bio:
I am a Ph.D. candidate and a fifth year graduate student in the UMBC Applied Mathematics program. My thesis adviser is Dr. Jinglai Shen, and I am currently working on constrained estimation/approximation problems using techniques from optimization, control, statistics, linear algebra, and spline theory. I will graduate in August of 2016.
