I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University, where I was advised by Salil Vadhan. During my program, I was a research intern at Microsoft Research in New England and the Discrete Algorithms Group at Google Research. In 2019, I received an S.M. from Harvard and before that obtained a B.A. in mathematics and a B.A. in computer science from Carleton College.
In general, through the use of (mostly) mathematical tools, I study the limits and capabilities of statistics for computer science applications. Currently, I am particularly interested in understanding the limits of performing computational social science under different constraints. e.g., for learning with limited resources or with privacy. I am also interested in other areas in the general fields of statistics, probability, information theory, machine learning, and theoretical computer science.
