I recently received my Ph.D. from Columbia University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Rocco Servedio. I am currently interning with Parikshit Gopalan at MSR, and starting this fall I will be a research fellow at the Simons Institute.

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

During graduate school I spent summer 2012 visiting Ryan O'Donnell at CMU, spring 2013 visiting Johan Håstad at KTH, and summer 2013 interning with Boaz Barak at MSR.
