Welcome to my homepage.

Bio and Interests

I am a third-year graduate student at MIT advised by Martin Rinard (link). I am broadly interested in robust machine learning and program synthesis.

Previously, I was a Research Engineer at Reservoir Labs (link). My research involved building compiler backends for task-based parallelism and heterogenous runtimes.

I graduated summa cum laude from Yale University in 2016 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a combined B.S./M.S. in Computer Science advised by Mariana Raykova (link).
