I am a mathematician/computer scientist in the Theory Group at MIT EECS. I was previously a FODSI postdoctoral fellow at MIT CSAIL hosted by Ankur Moitra. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Washington, where I was extremely fortunate to be advised by Shayan Oveis Gharan. I am interested in the design and analysis of sampling algorithms for high-dimensional probability distributions. I like thinking about Markov chain mixing times, statistical physics, and the geometry of polynomials.
