About me

I am a PhD student in the theory group of the computer science department at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). I started at UCI in Fall 2018.

MS awarded Spring 2020. PhD expected Spring 2023.

See my CV for professional experience.


My current and recent research includes rapidly mixing Markov chains; hierarchical clustering algorithms and their relationship to combinatorial optimization problems; a graph simplification problem; studying the graphs that arise from configurations in a game involving pegs and disks (Towers of Hanoi); and a problem motivated by drawing aesthetically pleasing (Lombardi) graphs.
