I am a Microsoft Research Fellow at the Simons Institute at UC Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University, where I was extremely fortunate to be advised by Rocco Servedio.

My research is in theoretical computer science, with an emphasis on analysis of Boolean functions, concrete complexity, and learning theory.

While in graduate school I spent summer 2012 visiting Ryan O'Donnell at CMU, spring 2013 visiting Johan Håstad at KTH, and summers 2013 and 2014 interning with Boaz Barak and Parikshit Gopalan at MSR.
