About Me

I work at Apple on database systems for iCloud, including the FoundationDB Record Layer. Before joining Apple, I was a graduate student in computer science at MIT, where I worked on sketching problems in machine learning and was privileged to be advised by Piotr Indyk.

I am broadly interested in the design, analysis, and application of algorithms, especially when they involve randomness and applications to large data sets.

Previously, I graduated from Caltech with a degree in computer science in 2016.

At Caltech, I was heavily involved in student government.

My CV is available.
