Hi hello!

I am currently a first year PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I was formerly an undergraduate studying Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics and Logic at Carnegie Mellon University.

My area of interest is theoretical computer science, in particular, algorithms and combinatorial optimization used to solve real world problems. As an undergraduate, I worked with Professor R. Ravi on projects relating to algorithm design for recommendation system diversification and student-question ranking problems. During the summer of 2018, I worked with Professor Samir Khuller on fair clustering algorithms.

I grew up in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, which is around ten minutes outside of Princeton University. During high school, I had the opportunity to participate in the Program for Algorithmic and Combinatorial Thinking, which inspired my love for theory and discrete math.
