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. If you are interested in working with me as a PhD student, please apply to MIT’s EECS PhD program!

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.
