About Me

I am a 3rd year graduate student at Caltech studying for a Ph.D in computing and mathematical sciences. My work at Caltech is supported by an NSF graduate fellowship.

I am a competitive runner with PRs of 2:15:26 in the marathon and 64:07 in the half. I am an alumnus of Williams College and Cambridge University. I currently help coach the cross country and track teams at Caltech.


I am currently working with Prof. Shuki Bruck and Prof. Leonard Schulman.
