I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the multidisciplinary Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO) program at Georgia Tech. My home department is mathematics. I am fortunate to be advised by Santosh Vempala, and to be supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Previously, I received my B.A. in mathematics from Williams College in 2015.
My research interests include discrete math and theoretical computer science, and more specifically graph limits and sampling algorithms for graphs. I am also interested in applications of math and computing to theoretical neuroscience.
