I am a first-year PhD student in the Computer Science department at UCSD. My advisor is Mihir Bellare.

In September 2016, I received my Master degree in Computer Science at UCSB, advised by Stefano Tessaro. In December 2015, I graduated from the College of Creative Studies with B.S. in Computer Science and B.S. in Mathematics.
