I am pursuing a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science. I am currently working on research in geometric dimensionality reduction and unsupervised machine learning. This work will be extended into neural networks and deep learning. I enjoy seeking out interesting intersections between mathematics, computer science, and art.

A Butterfly Through Time

ink on paper

This image is an embedding of natural imagery video of flowers and a butterfly. The embedding was performed using Locally Linear Embedding (LLE) a nonlinear dimensionality reduction technique, introduced by Saul & Roweis in 2000. LLE is an unsupervised machine learning algorithm. LLE was applied to five frames of creative commons video of a butterfly flapping it wings surrounded by flowers utilizing open source software.
