I am a second year PhD student in the mathematics department of UC Berkeley. My research focuses on approximation algorithms, graph theory and probabilistic combinatorics. Currently, along with my participation in the math department I am a member of the Simons Institute. Before coming to Berkeley, I received my bachelor's degree from Harvard University and worked for two years as a derivatives trader for Goldman Sachs.
My office is 824 Evans Hall.
