Biography
I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UT Austin in the Algorithms and Computational Theory group. I am working with Anna Gál on problems in circuit complexity. I am an Assistant Instructor teaching CS105C for the Spring 2018 semester.
I completed my undergraduate education at Carnegie Mellon University in 2013. I worked with Klaus Sutner on my senior thesis "Classification and Automaticity of Discrete Dynamical Systems", for which I was awarded the Allen Newell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research. I worked with Mor HarcholBalter on a problems in Queueing Theory.
