I am a mathematician and computer scientist. I am employed as an Assistant Professor at MIT, in the Theory of Computing group in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, where I hold the Jamieson Career Development Chair.

Previously, I was a Miller fellow in the theory group at UC Berkeley, hosted by Prasad Raghavendra and Luca Trevisan. Before that, I got my PhD at Cornell, advised by David Steurer.
