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 supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Previously, I received my B.A. in mathematics from Williams College in 2015.
I work in the fields of discrete math and theoretical computer science. More specifically, I am interested in methods for graph approximation, analysis of random processes, and applications of math and computing to theoretical neuroscience.
