Prior to coming to UCSD, I received my BS in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a focus in number theory and discrete mathematics. During the summer of 2007 I participated in the Algorithmic Combinatorics on Words REU. I am also an alumna of the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program.
During the summer quarter of 2013 I was an intern with the engineering team at AppNeta, where I helped improve and redesign some graph traversal algorithms for tracing web applications.
During the summer of 2014 I was an intern at Sandia National Labs with the graphs group. I worked on a graph streaming problem with C. Seshadhri.
I advanced to candidacy June 2015 after giving my thesis proposal talk on local and distributed algorithms for massive graphs. Shortly after, I celebrated at the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School on randomization in numerical linear algebra (RandNLA) in the beautiful and historic Delphi, Greece.
Here is a copy of my CV.
