Brief Bio

I am a second year PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University working with Professor David Tse, recently on developing fast (near linear time) randomized algorithms using techniques from multi-armed bandits. I am grateful to be supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the Stanford Graduate Fellowship (SGF). I graduated from UC Berkeley in May 2018 where I studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In my time there, I was fortunate to get the chance to work with Professor Kannan Ramchandran on coding theory and its applications to distributed computing. My current research focus is on constructing algorithms that adapt to problem instance difficulty, and more broadly in randomized algorithms, machine learning, multi-armed bandits, and their applications in engineering and computational biology problems.
