About Me

I am a second-year PhD student advised by Prof. Russell Impagliazzo and Prof. Mohan Paturi.

My main research interests lie in theoretical computer science, specifically complexity theory and learning theory. I am currently working on smooth boosting algorithms and trace reconstruction.

I am a member of UCSD's theory group.

Before coming to UCSD, I was an Egleston Scholar at Columbia University. I obtained my BS in Computer Science with an Applied Math Minor from Columbia Engineering in 2018. At Columbia, I had the privilege to work with Prof. Xi Chen and I have very fond memories of Columbia's theory group.
