I am a fourth year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Venkatesan Guruswami and Pravesh K. Kothari. I am broadly interested in Complexity Theory and Cryptography, specifically in topics such as probabilistically checkable proofs, property testing, coding theory, and the sum-of-squares hierarchy.
Prior to CMU, I completed a B.S. in EECS at UC Berkeley, where I was advised by Alessandro Chiesa and Ren Ng.
My research is supported by an NSF fellowship. For the first three years of my PhD, I was also supported by an ARCS scholarship.
I helped co-organize CMU's Theory Club with Pedro Paredes.
