About Me

I am a PhD student in theoretical computer science at MIT, advised by Virginia Vassilevska Williams. My research interests are mainly in graph algorithms including parameterized algorithms, dynamic algorithms, distributed algorithms, data structures, and fine-grained complexity.

I have a Masters in Computer Science from Stanford and a B.S. in Computer Science/Math from Harvey Mudd College where Ran Libeskind-Hadas sparked my interest in algorithms.
