I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at York University.
I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago hosted by the TRIPODS Institute for Foundations of Data Science. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Rutgers University under the supervision of Swastik Kopparty.
I am broadly interested in Algorithms, Probability, Discrete Mathematics, and the Mathematical Foundations of Data Science.
