Home Research Publications Curriculum Vitae

Hi! I am a PhD candidate in the EECS department at UC Berkeley, working with Martin Wainwright and Kannan Ramchandran. I am working in the areas of statistical learning theory and game theory, with a focus on problems in crowdsourcing. My thesis committee members are Martin Wainwright, Kannan Ramchandran, Christos Papadimitriou, and Tom Griffiths. In the summers of 2013 and 2014, I interned at Microsoft Research, Redmond working with Denny Zhou in the machine learning group.

I have been awarded the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship for 2014-16 (thanks, MSR!), and previously the Berkeley Felowship for 2011-13.
