I'm a final year PhD student in the theory group at the University of Washington Allen School of CSE. I'm fortunate to be advised by Thomas Rothvoss.
I'm the ICPC coach at UW, and run an annual programming contest since 2019. You can find this year's problemset here and last year's problemset here.
Before coming to UW, I earned my B.A. in Math and CS from Cornell, where I worked with Bobby Kleinberg and David Williamson. I was also the team lead and coach of the ACM club.
I am broadly interested in designing algorithms for problems in combinatorial optimization, using tools from probability, convex geometry, and discrepancy theory.
