I am a first year EECS PhD student in the Theory Group at Berkeley. Previously, I was an engineer at Two Sigma Investments from August 2017 to August 2018. I received my BA in Mathematics from Princeton in June 2016, where I had the good fortune to work with Maria Chudnovsky.

My interests, like this webpage, will probably evolve, though I am easily intrigued by anything graph theoretic. Currently I am exploring graph algorithms and spectral graph theory. I have side interests in 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.
