I am currently an assistant professor of computer science in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas.
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.
