I recently received my Ph.D. in Mathematics and Statistics from MIT, supervised by Philippe Rigollet. In Fall 2019, I will be joining the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Data Science at NYU as an assistant professor.

My research focuses on designing and analyzing robust procedures for learning from noisy information, especially when the underlying data has geometric structure. I am particularly interested in statistical aspects of optimal transport.
