About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Washington, Seattle, advised by Yin Tat Lee. My area of research is algorithms for convex optimization, specifically semidefinite programming.

Before starting optimization research in 2017, I studied Electronics/Electrical Engineering, with research on rapid diagnostic tests for malaria, and spent some time in industry as a signal processing engineer working on pulse oximeters and bluetooth speakers.
