I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley. In June 2020, I received my Ph. D. from Stanford, where I was advised by Andrea Montanari.

My research is motivated by data science, and lies at the intersection of statistics, machine learning, information theory, and computer science. I often build on insights that originated within the statistical physics literature. My current research interests include high dimensional probability, theory of deep learning, and theory of reinforcement learning.
