Hi, I’m Nick!
I am an incoming Ph.D. student in CS at University of Wisconsin – Madison where I am advised by Fred Sala. Before that, I had the pleasure of working with Ameet Talwalkar and Zack Lipton during my MS at Carnegie Mellon University. As an undergraduate, I was extremely fortunate to work with both Sanjoy Dasgupta and Gary Cottrell at the University of California, San Diego. Before that, I was a community college student at Fresno City College, where I was lucky enough to learn calculus, linear algebra, AND C++ from Greg Jamison.
I am broadly interested in making machine learning more accessible and applicable to new domains. As of recent, I’ve been particularly interested in model selection and automation.
Other interests: caffeine (broadly), photography, pottery.
Extracurricular: I’m an ordained Dudeist priest so I’m pretty sure I can officiate weddings. I’m also the Head Researcher of Margarita Machine Lounge Therapy at Vacation Inc. - I encourage you to check out our awesome selection of luxury sunscreens. My Toyota Prius is unoffocially the fastest Prius at Bonneville Speedway.
