About me


I am a fourth year PhD student at the Stanford Statistics Department, advised by Professor Andrea Montanari. I am fortunate to be supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I am broadly interested in problems in high-dimensional statistics. I have primarly worked on regularized M-estimators in high-dimensional linear regression using exciting and powerful new mathematical techniques which allow us to exactly characterize the asymptotic behavior of such estimators.

Before my PhD, I received a bachelor's degree in mathematics and physics in 2014 and a master's degree in electrical engeering in 2016, both from Stanford University. Outside of statistics, I enjoy hiking and reading about history and politics.
