I am a PhD student in statistics at UNC-Chapel Hill with research interests in machine learning, high-dimensional statistics, statistical methods for non-standard data and connections between pure mathematics and statistics.

Occasionally I hone my programming skills on HackerRank. When not doing statistics, you can probably find my playing guitar or running.
