I am a first year EECS PhD student in the Theory Group at Berkeley, where I am lucky to be advised by Satish Rao. Previously, I was an engineer at Two Sigma Investments from August 2016 to August 2017. I received my BA in Mathematics from Princeton in June 2016, where I had the good fortune to work with Maria Chudnovsky.

My interests will probably still evolve, but I am intrigued by anything graph theoretic. Currently, I am exploring convex geometry, continuous optimization, discrepancy, and approximation algorithms. I have side interests in spectral graph theory, mechanism design, and social networks.

I am very passionate about STEM outreach, especially getting younger students excited about math. Moving forward, I seek opportunities to promote diversity in these fields.
