I am a PhD candidate in the statistics department at UC Berkeley where I am advised by Steve Evans. Previously, I was an undergraduate in the mathematics department at Stanford.

My research in mathematical statistics develops rigorous foundations for problems at the intersection of statistics and geometry. Some specific topics I'm interested in include:

- Statistical inference for Fréchet means, and related theoretical and applied problems in non-Euclidean statistics
- Optimal transport, and various aspects of stochastic and infinite-dimensional optimization
- Clustering, and other topics in machine learning.
