About me

Research Interests

My current focus in on distributed network optimization, but my other interests include approximation algorithms, hardness in P and spectral graph theory.


I am a PhD student in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I work on the design and analysis of algorithms as a part of the the Algorithms and Complexity Group. I am lucky to be advised by Prof. Bernhard Haeupler.
