CMU (current, PhD in CS)

Caltech ('18, BS in Math)

I am a computer science PhD student at CMU.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, I was a computer science Masters student at Cambridge University, as a Churchill Scholar.

Before that, I was a math major (and computer science minor) at Caltech.

Broadly, I seek to apply mathematical thinking to problems in computer science with practical applications. My recent areas of interest include secure group messaging and the design of algorithms for error-correcting codes.





While at Caltech, I played tenor saxophone in the
Caltech-Occidental Wind Orchestra. I can juggle five balls and three of various other objects.

Math is Fun?

Here is a list of math jokes, compiled by Laura Shou.
Here is a packet of "fun" math problems, compiled from various sources by a group including William Hoza, Laura Shou, Jalex Stark, Michael Wheeler, and myself. They are designed to be printed double sided and cut in two, so that each problem has a link to its "answer" on the back.
