I am a research assistant professor at TTI-Chicago. My research is in theoretical computer science, with an emphasis on computational complexity.

I spent the 2014-2015 academic year as a Microsoft Research fellow at the Simons Institute at UC Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. in 2014 from Columbia University, where I was extremely fortunate to be advised by Rocco Servedio. While in graduate school I visited Ryan O'Donnell at CMU and Johan Håstad at KTH, and interned with Boaz Barak and Parikshit Gopalan at Microsoft Research.

My research is supported by an NSF Algorithmic Foundations award on Boolean circuit complexity (Medium, with Rocco Servedio, 2016-2020).
