Hi! I'm studying statistics at UC Berkeley, advised by Bin Yu and Martin Wainwright. I'm a second year Ph.D. student, supported by a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. I graduated from Stanford University in June 2011 with a M.S. in electrical engineering, B.S. in mathematics, and a minor in physics

I'm interested in optimization, probability, and the interplay between theory and experiment in all sorts of science. In particular, I like to think about inference problems in genomics, single-molecule biophysics, and cosmology.


  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, 2011

  • B.S. in Mathematics with distinction, and with a Minor in Physics, Stanford University, 2011
