I am a PhD student in Department of Computer Science at Princeton University, started in Sep. 2014. I am coadvised by Prof. Mung Chiang and Prof. Prateek Mittal.

I received B.A degree in Computer Science (Highest Distinction) and Mathematics from University of Virginia in 2013.

I also worked at ICF for one year from 2013 to 2014 before entering grad school.
