About Me

I am a PhD student at NYU Tandon where I am fortunate to be advised by Lisa Hellerstein and work with Chris Musco. I am broadly interested in algorithms, complexity theory, and discrete math.

I received my undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science from Middlebury College. At Middlebury, I designed quantum algorithms for graph theory problems with Shelby Kimmel and worked on applications of math in recreational board games with Alex Lyford.
