I am a graduate student in computer science at MIT.

My advisor is Piotr Indyk.

I also spend some of my time at Google Brain.


Office: 32-G580

I am broadly interested in algorithms, with a focus on machine learning, statistics, and signal processing. I explore theoretical aspects of algorithmic problems in these fields. An important part of my research is leveraging theoretical insights to develop practical algorithms that scale to large data sets.

I received the Google PhD Fellowship in Machine Learning. In prior years, I was supported by grants from MADALGO, Shell, and the Simons Foundation.

Before coming to MIT, I studied computer science at the University of Cambridge (Trinity College), where I received my Bachelor's degree in 2011.
