I am currently a computer science graduate student at Michigan State University. My primary research is in the area of fingerprint recognition. More specifically, I work on fabricating high fidelity 3D fingerprint targets and spoofs. Prior to studying at Michigan State, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science.
