Hey there! I'm a fourth year Ph.D. student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Theory of Computing group. I'm fortunate to be advised by Jerry Zhu, focusing on algorithms under uncertainty and MARL.
Before that, I obtained my B.S. in computer science and mathematics from UIUC. I was fortunate to work with Alexandra Kolla on spectral graph theory. I also worked with Alexander Yong as a member of ICLUE.
My interests span the fields of classical algorithms, algorithms under uncertainty, beyond worst-case analysis, machine learning, and game theory. Though, you can often catch me going down a rabbit hole for other topics. A few topics I've dabbled in include:
Algorithms under Uncertainty
Algorithmic Game Theory
I've had several teaching positions over the years ranging from course assistant all the way up to instructor. I've held positions at UIUC, UW-Madison, and the New Horizon's Summer School sponsored by SIGACT and TTIC. Most recently, I served as an instructor for CS 577, introduction to algorithms, at UW-Madison.
I really enjoy showing students how fun TCS/ML can be and developing their problem-solving skills! I often think about how ideas from Psychology and Machine Learning could improve human learning. For more information on the courses I teach and my teaching philosophy, check out Teaching.
I really enjoy making music, playing basketball, binging anime, over-analyzing everything in life, and much more! To learn more about me outside of acedemia, check out Personal. Especially if you are a student, you might find this page entertaining.
