I am a
second third year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am in the Theory Group within the Computer Science Department, though nominally my degree is in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO). I am very fortunate to be advised by Anupam Gupta. I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science, more specifically in approximation algorithms for graph and network design problems. I am also interested in online/dynamic/streaming algorithms, and anything involving submodular functions.
Before that I received a B.Sc. in Computer Science/Applied Mathematics, and a B.Sc. in Mathematics from Brown University, class of 2015.
