I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Algorithms, Combinatorics & Optimization (ACO) program at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am grateful to be advised by Professor R. Ravi. My interests lie in approximation algorithms for combinatorial optimization, especially for network design problems. I also like to think about online versions of these problems. In 2020, I received my B.S. in computer science from Georgia Institute of Techology.
I am very fortunate to be supported for 3 years of my PhD by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) under Grant No. DGE1745016 and DGE2140739.
In my free time, I am passionate about rock climbing and cooking. I also recently began fostering cats!
