I completed my PhD in computer science at Berkeley in 2014. My research interests are a bit eclectic, and they span statistics, computation, optimization, and machine learning. At Berkeley, I worked in the Statistical Artificial Intelligence Lab (SAIL) under the joint supervision of Michael Jordan and Martin Wainwright. I obtained my master's degree (MA) in statistics in Fall 2012. I was also an undergrad and a masters student at Stanford University, where I worked with Daphne Koller in her research group, DAGS. I also spend some time at Google Research, where I had (and continue to have) the great fortune to work with Yoram Singer.
