Curriculum Vitae

I will be joining the Department of Statistics at Harvard University as an Assistant Professor in July. I am currently 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. I have applied my high-dimensional inference work to a number of genetics problems, and have also collaborated on projects in immunology, surgery, and health care.
