I am currently a second year PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I work in the Theory and Algorithms area. I am fortunate to be advised by Sariel Har-Peled. My office is Siebel Center, 3219. Come say hi!

I was formerly an undergraduate studying Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics and Logic at Carnegie Mellon University.

My area of interest is theoretical computer science, with a particular disposition towards optimization algorithms. However, I have a general interest in anything related to Mathematics or TCS. As an undergraduate, I worked with Phil Gibbons on batch parallel algorithms for my senior thesis. I also worked with Rashmi Vinayak on improving ensemble algorithms with binary codes.

Finally, I'd like to thank my colleague Tanvi Bajpai for the website template. You should check out her research!
