  • We have a new theory student blog! Check out Learning With Errors.

  • Here are the slides from our work on UG-hardness of Max CSPs, in APPROX 2016.

I'm a first-year PhD student in the Theory of Computation group at at Harvard, advised by Madhu Sudan. I did my undergrad in EECS at UC Berkeley.

I'm generally interested in Theoretical Computer Science. I like theory, science, and sometimes computers.

I am generously supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

In the past I have enjoyed TA-ing for EE121 (Coding & Digital Comm), EE16A, and CS70 (Discrete Math & Probability). (Thank you students, for the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor award !)
