"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing one obsolete." - Richard Buckminster Fuller

I am a Senior at Purdue with a major in computer science and a concentration in machine learning and I minor in political science. I am spent last Summer interning at Yelp and my intending graduation date is in December. I am an aspiring product manager and am actively looking for full time positions in this capacity or for engineering roles with PM responsibilites. I enjoy both planning the product development of all my team projects and contributing to the engineering effort, particularly with anything data science related.
