I am currently a fifth (and final) year Ph.D. student in the Algorithms and Theory Group at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before coming to UIUC, I was an undergraduate at Princeton University.
I have broad interests in theoretical computer science and optimization. I am currently working on approximation algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems. The main areas of approximation that I have worked in are routing, network design, and submodular optimization. I have also worked on geometric approximation problems, general packing and covering, and large data analysis using MapReduce. My advisor is Chandra Chekuri. I am also very grateful to work with Sariel Har-Peled. You can find my papers and my talks on this page.
