I am a Ph.D. student in the Statistics Department at Stanford University. My advisors are Andrea Montanari and Iain Johnstone. I am supported by a Hertz Fellowship and NDSEG Fellowship.

My research is interdisciplinary and lies at the intersection of applied probability, statistical theory, computational algorithms, and biological applications.

Before coming to Stanford, I worked in computational biochemistry at D. E. Shaw Research, mentored by Ron Dror. Prior to this, I studied in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge, advised by Richard Nickl and supported by a Churchill Scholarship. I completed undergraduate studies in mathematics and masters studies in computer science at Harvard University, advised by Horng-Tzer Yau and supported by a Siebel Scholarship.
