About Me

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University where I am part of the Theory Group. I am fortunate to be advised by Fatma Kılınç-Karzan.

I work on problems at the intersection of theoretical computer science and continuous optimization. Recently, I have been thinking about quadratically constrained quadratic programs and other problems in convex and nonconvex optimization.

Office hours
