About me
I am a third year graduate student at UC Berkeley in the Computer Science Theory group, supported by a Berkeley University Fellowship. My advisors are Bernd Sturmfels and Alessandro Chiesa. Before coming to Berkeley, I got my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with Computer Science from MIT.
My research interests include computational algebraic geometry, tropical geometry and cryptography.
