Computer Science MSc Student

University of Windsor


I am a Computer Science MSc student researching computational geometry at the University of Windsor, supervised by Ahmad Biniaz and Jit Bose. Prior to this, I completed undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science with a minor in Statistics, also at the University of Windsor.

My Erdős number is at most 3 (via Erdős-Aronov-Bose-Devaney or Erdős-Shallit-Biniaz-Devaney).

Outside of academics, I enjoy reading, yoga, and nature photography.
