I am a fourth-year Computational and Applied Mathematics PhD student at the University of Chicago, advised by Prof. Daniel Sanz-Alonso. I also work closely with Prof. Panos Toulis. Prior to UChicago, I received an MMath degree from the University of Waterloo and a BS degree from the University of Michigan.

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in developing methodological tools for uncertainty quantification, experimental design and statistical inferences. In particular, I have worked on Bayesian/Monte-Carlo methods for parameter estimation problems under differential equation constraints and leveraged stochastic gradient descent for efficient statistical inference procedures.
