I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Theory Group at UC Berkeley, generously supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a Chancellor's Fellowship. Before coming to Berkeley, I got my B.S. in CS/Math from Georgia Tech.
I am interested in the design and analysis of randomized algorithms, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods and in the computational implications of phase transitions.
My advisor is Alistair Sinclair.
