I am currently a postdoc and adjunct assistant profesor at the Columbia University Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering.
In 2006, I graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Computer Science and a specialization in Applied Mathematics. In 2011, I graduated from Yale University with a Ph.D. in Computer Science. From 2011-2013, I was a postdoc in the Communication Theory Laboratory at EPFL.
I am broadly interested in combinatorial optimization, large-scale graphical models, approximate counting and inference, and belief propagation style (e.g., min-sum, sum-product, etc.) message-passing algorithms. For more details, see my publications page and CV.
This semester I am teaching CSOR W4246 Algorithms for Data Science.
Office Hours: Mon. 5pm-6pm, Thurs. 6pm-7pm, and by appointment.
