Hi, I'm Dylan.
I'm a software developer and pianist interested in the intersection between music and artificial intelligence
let's connect the dots
As a computer scientist, I aim to develop novel technologies to empower those in need while integrating scientific endeavors with real-world applications.
Ask why? Understand how.
Curiosity drives my interests. I am interested in why things are the way they are, so expect lots of questions: questions that provoke thought, discussion, and action.
From a solo act to a team player
If you wanna go quickly, I can make it happen. As a fast-paced learner with a curious mindset, I can go solo when needed. But if you wanna go far and prefer collaboration over competition, great endeavors await.
tools + tech
Oof, you've come so far... a little about me.
I'm Dylan, an EECS student at Stanford. I'm working on generative AI for math applications at Stanford HCI/HAI under Prof. Hari Subramonyam. I'm also a member of the Robust Systems Lab, researching formal verification & hardware security for AI accelerators under Prof. Subhahish Mitra.
Previously, I worked at the US Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) as a Phillips Directed Energy Research Scholar under Dr.Ashar Ali and published a paper on modeling HPM devices w/ ML algorithms and particle-in-cell methods. I've also interned at Columbia University's Barnard Programming Languages Labs under Prof. Mark Santolucito and developed automation tools at US Air Force Research Lab (MCTSSA) under Sean Mulcahy. Last year, I had the opportunity to spend my summer in New York City with some of my best friends at Jane Street, working on algebraic number theory & combinatorics projects alongside quantitative trading strategies to automate market exchanges.
For fun, I enjoy poker, compete on Stanford's Badminton team and play piano. While I don't play competitively anymore, I've been lucky to have had the opportunity to travel internationally to perform at festivals (Vršac, Berlin, Carnegie Hall). During the pandemic, I found myself holed up playing CTFs and cybersecurity challenges. My friends and I eventually formed RGBsec and managed to win several international competitions, including UMDCTF, while placing first in the U.S. HS division for the year 2020.
I've been fortunate to have been mentored by such brilliant people and I'm grateful for the opportunities to learn and grow under their guidance. In addition to the people mentioned above, in no particular order: Dr. Heewon Kwon, Rina Dokshitsky, Syed Akhtar, Kenton Youngstrom, Zhuo Qun Song, Leanne Weaver, Andreu Ibanez, and many more.
Please reach out if you're interested in learning more about my projects.I'm always open to new challenges where I can help people with lines of code. If you believe we can excel together, please get in touch!
