About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Associate in IDSS (Institute for Data, Systems, and Society) at MIT working with Ali Jadbabaie. I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT advised by Yury Polyanskiy. Previous to that, I received my B.S.E in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. At Princeton, I did my junior and senior independent work with Paul Cuff.

My research interests include information theory, prediction with logarithmic loss, quantization and data compression, high-dimensional statistics, data analytics, and models for social dynamics and inference.
