I am a first year PhD student in the Theory Group at UC Berkeley, fortunate to be advised by Prasad Raghavendra . Most recently, I have been thinking about problems to understand the power and limitations of semidefinite programming for average case problems. More generally, I am interested in random matrix theory, combinatorics, and geometry of polynomials. My undergraduate education was at Carnegie Mellon University where I had the fortune of being advised by Ryan O'Donnell on my senior thesis. I also had the pleasure of working with Anil Ada, Bernhard Haeupler, Ariel Procaccia, and David Woodruff.
