Hi! I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Chicago, advised by Professor Nathan Srebro. I am broadly interested in statistical learning theory and the interplay between optimization and generalization. An overview of my research can be found here.

Before graduate school, I completed my undergraduate study in Applied Mathematics (B.S.) and Statistics (B.S.) also from UChicago. I had the pleasure of working with Professor Michael Stein on spatio-temporal modeling of Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) data. I spent a year at UCLA studying mathematics before transferring to Chicago.
