I would be pretty miserable if I spent all of my time teaching and researching computer science. Luckily, I have plenty of interests outside of academia. I like to spend my free time practicing yoga, taking boxing classes, trying out dessert recipes, playing tabletop board games, and reading about American history.

I am a MASSIVE college football fan. I mainly root for USC, but I am a big fan of the sport in general - you should keep this in mind if you ever try to reach me on Saturdays in the Fall. The NBA, and specifically the Trail Blazers, are my other big sports passion.

I am also a huge movie, TV, and pop culture junkie. During grad school I enjoyed writing movie reviews as a hobby, and every year I make it my personal goal to watch each of the best picture nominees.
