I am a first year PhD student at UC San Diego. My research focuses on machine learning, as well as its applications to systems, networking, and security. I primarily work under the guidance of Lawrence Saul, as well as Geoffrey Voelker and Stefan Savage. My CV.
I graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a BS in computer science and mathematics. While there, I researched collective classification with Lise Getoor, sequence compression with Carl Kingsford, graph mining with Raj Sunderraman, and auction design with Mohammad Hajiaghayi.
