I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in statistics at UNC-Chapel Hill advised by Andrew Nobel (UNC-Chapel Hill) and Kevin McGoff (UNC-Charlotte). My research interests include optimal transport, stochastic processes and statistical machine learning.

In Summer 2021, I worked as a quantitative research intern at Optiver in Chicago. In 2022, I will be returning to Optiver as a full-time quantitative researcher.

When not doing statistics, you can probably find me running or playing guitar.
