I am a first year PhD student at U.C. Irvine. I am advised by Vijay Vazirani

I am interested in theoretical computer science, especially in complexity theory where I like thinking about how randomness affects computation. I also am very interested in theoretical cryptography and algorithmic game theory.

I got my bachelors in Computer Science and Math from the University of California, Irvine. I am a big fan of chess and basketball although I am terrible at both games.

I will be a Visiting Fellow at Simons Institute, Berkeley in Fall 2019 for their program on Online and Matching-Based Market Design
