About Me

I am a second year PhD student working under the supervision of Adam Smith in the Boston University Department of Computer Science. Before coming to BU, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at Rutgers University in 2022. I am primarily interested in sublinear time algorithms, data privacy, and connections between the two fields. In my free time I enjoy reading fiction, jumping rope, and drinking coffee.
