I am a PhD student in computer science at UC Berkeley, advised by Michael I. Jordan. I received my MA in Statistics from UC Berkeley in 2013.

Prior to Berkeley, I received my bachelor's degrees in mathematics and computer science in 2009 from MIT. I also received my master's degree in computer science from MIT in 2010.
