Hi there!

I am a postdoc in the ETH Zürich Math Department where I’m lucky to be hosted by Rico Zenklusen in the Mathematical Optimization Group.

I’m broadly interested in theoretical computer science but I’m especially keen on graph-theoretic questions in approximation algorithms, online algorithms, distributed algorithms and metric embeddings. Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how to compactly represent various properties of graphs.

I’m thrilled to be joining the Brown University Computer Science Department as an assistant professor starting Fall 2023. If you’re a current / prospective undergraduate / graduate Brown student interested in doing research on algorithms, send me an email!

I completed my PhD in computer science in the Carnegie Mellon Computer Science Department where I was very fortunate to be advised by Bernhard Haeupler and R. Ravi.
