I am a doctoral student in the Theory of Computation group at Harvard University. Previously, I studied at Princeton University, where I did some research: I proved a matrix rigidity upper bound with Zeev Dvir, wrote an undergraduate thesis advised by Ran Raz containing a new proof of an old algebraic complexity result, and before that helped out Sanjeev Arora's unsupervised learning research group.
