About Me

As of Fall of 2019, I am a second year PhD student and Dean’s Fellow in the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland, College Park. I have the pleasure to work with Prof. MohammadTaghi Hajiaghayi on problems in hierarchical clustering and distributed graph algorithms for big data. I also work with Prof. John Dickerson on using stable marriage to model the faculty hiring market.

Previously, I attended Harvey Mudd College. In 2018, I completed my BS in Computer Science & Mathematics with high distinction, honors in math and computer science, as well as the Class of ‘94 award for outstanding course work, research, and service in CS. There, I conducted research in algorithms for computational biology with Prof. Yi-Chieh (Jessica) Wu, and in scheduling and planning with Prof. Jim Boerkoel and Dr. Jeremy Frank of NASA Ames. I also partook in csteachingtips with Prof. Colleen Lewis.

In addition, I spent the Summer of 2017 at the Rutgers DIMACS REU researching topics in complexity theory under Prof. Eric Allender. I have had two summer internships doing backend work at Bloomberg and machine learning at Facebook. This summer, I will be conducting theoretical machine learning research at Google Seattle.
