I am a fifth (and final) year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am extremely fortunate to be co-advised by Pravesh Kothari and David Woodruff. I am broadly interested in Theoretical Computer Science and my current research interests are robust algorithm design, the sum-of-squares convex programming hierarchy, randomized numerical linear algebra and high dimensional probability.

Previously, I was an undergrad at Rutgers, New Brunswick, where I had the pleasure of working with Martin Farach-Colton and Pranjal Awasthi on external memory algorithms and clustering respectively. During the summer of 2021, I interned with Madhur Tulsiani and Yury Makarychev at Toyota Technological Institute-Chicago and in summer 2020, I interned with Ken Clarkson at IBM Almaden.
