I am a fourthyear PhD student in the Stanford Statistics Department, advised by Trevor Hastie.
I received my A.B. from Harvard University where I concentrated in Mathematics. My thesis adviser was
Dennis Gaitsgory.
In the Summer of 2012 I spent three months at Facebook on the data science
team, where my mentor was Daniel Ting. Since July 2013 I have had an
active research collaboration with the ads team at Facebook, where my
supervisor is Joaquin Candela.
My favorite book is
