I am an ECE PhD student jointly advised by Professors Kayvan Najarian and Alfred Hero. Prior to University of Michigan, I received a BA in Computer Science at UMass Amherst, where I completed my undergraduate thesis under Professor Andrew McCallum. Before that, I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, then spent my senior year of high school living with a Chinese host family in Beijing.
My research involves formalizing complex statistical estimation and decision problems that show up in medical treatment and data collection scenarios, then developing algorithms to solve these problems. I use and develop methods from numerical optimization, decentralized and statistical signal processing, contextual bandit problems, and statistics.
Outside of research, I jog, play ultimate frisbee, play drums in an amateur punk/psych/garage/surf band, collect music and records, go to live music shows, and cook.
