I am a second-year graduate student in statistics at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am advised by Xiaohui Chen. I received my master’s degree in applied mathematics at UC Santa Barbara, where my advisor was Paul Atzberger. I hold a BS in applied mathematics with a minor in statistics from UCLA, where I worked with Chris Anderson.

My interests are in artificial intelligence and machine learning. I work on the development of methodology in machine learning and deep learning with foundations in branches of applied mathematics and statistics and with broader implications and applications.

At UIUC, I am a member of DIGIMAT, a research group focused on the interface of data science, statistical physics, and materials science. DIGIMAT is co-hosted by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and Materials Research Lab. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation.

At UC Santa Barbara, I was a member of Atzberger Research Group.
