Curriculum Vitae

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Stanford University's Statistics Department, where I work with Emmanuel Cand├Ęs. In 2011, I received a B.S. in mathematics (honors thesis advised by Bala Rajaratnam) and physics, as well as a M.S. in statistics, from Stanford University.

I am interested in both theoretical and applied statistical problems. On the theoretical side, I am concentrating on high-dimensional statistical inference, robust machine learning, and robotic motion-planning. On the applied side, I have been fortunate to work with a number of excellent collaborators in fields such as immunology, surgery, and health care. I am also a member of the Statistics for Social Good working group and I consistently participate in Stanford's free consulting service.
