Biographical Sketch

I have a Ph.D. in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University (2014). After that, I joined the Yale Institute for Network Science at Yale University. I worked two years as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Electrical Engineering Department, and one year as an Associate Research Scientist with a joint appointment as a Lecturer in the Computer Science Department at Yale.

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of applied probability, statistics, and computer science. I am interested in the investigation of fundamental principles to perform scalable inference, learning, and optimization in high-dimensional models, and in the design and analysis of algorithms in machine learning, with applications to graphical models and Monte Carlo methods.
