I am a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond.
Prior to joining Microsoft, I was a Google Research Fellow at Simons Institute at UC Berkeley. Before that, I recieved my Ph.D. in 2016 from Columbia University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Xi Chen. I was supported by a Simons Graduate Fellowship during 2014-2016.
My research focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms with an emphasis on big data processing, including algorithmic graph theory, massively parallel computing and machine learning theory.
