I am a PhD student in the Theory Group at UC Berkeley,
fortunate to be advised by Prasad Raghavendra.
Most recently, I have been exploring the connections between semidefinite programming and the statistical physics
lens into algorithm design. More generally, I am interested in probability & combinatorics.
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 am also grateful for the mentorship of
Anil Ada,
Bernhard Haeupler, Ariel Procaccia, and
David Woodruff during my time at CMU.
My research is supported by the Google PhD Fellowship.
