I am a final year Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. I have been fortunate to be mentored by Dr. Quanquan Gu.

My research is centered around Machine Learning, which spans the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Optimization, Reinforcement Learning, Data Mining and High Dimensional Statistics.

My ultimate research goal is to develop computationally- and data-efficient machine learning algorithms with both strong empirical performance and theoretical guarantees. See my Curriculum Vitae (updated April 2021).

I will graduate in the summer of 2021. I am currently on the academic job market.
