About me


I am a fifth 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. In the summer of 2019, I held an internship at Microsoft Research New England, and was fortunate to be hosted by Vasilis Syrgkanis and Greg Lewis. Before my PhD, I received a bachelor's degree in mathematics and physics in 2014 and a master's degree in electrical engineering in 2016, both from Stanford University.

I am broadly interested in problems in high-dimensional statistics, and in particular in optimal estimation under computational constraints, exact asymptotics, and inference in high-dimensional models. I help organize the Online Causal Inference Seminar. Outside of statistics, I enjoy biking, hiking, and reading.
