I'm on the job market this year!

I'm a postdoc at UPenn, working with Aaron Roth and Michael Kearns. I completed my PhD at UCSD, advised by Daniele Micciancio and Russell Impagliazzo. I'm broadly interested in the theoretical foundations of responsible computing, particularly questions related to fairness, privacy, robustness, and reproducibility. I also work on problems in lattice-based cryptography, with a focus on secure computation.

In my free time, I enjoy aerial silks and attempting to walk my cat.
