About Me

I am a first year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Venkat Guruswami. I am broadly interested in Complexity Theory and Cryptography, specifically in topics such as probabilistically checkable proofs, property testing, and coding theory.

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 and an ARCS scholarship.
