I am a fifth-year PhD student in the Theory Group at UC Berkeley. I am fortunate to be co-advised by Satish Rao and Nikhil Srivastava. My research interests lie in the theory of algorithms, especially in planar graph algorithms and algorithms using spectral graph theory.
I am on the academic job market this year. CV
