I am an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Washington.

My research interests revolve around the foundations of machine learning, often with a focus on datasets, evaluation, reliable methods, and large models.


Before joining UW, I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley where my mentors were Moritz Hardt and Ben Recht. I received my PhD from MIT advised by Piotr Indyk.

The papers below give an overview of topics I have worked on. For a full list of publications, please see this page or Google Scholar.
