About

I am a computer science Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State University. My research is in the area of fingerprint recognition. I primarily work in three areas: (i) fingerprint spoof detection, using a combination of hardware and software, (ii) learning a fixed-length fingerprint representation for large-scale search and encrypted matching, and (iii) infant fingerprint recognition. Prior to studying at Michigan State, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science.
