I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech. My research interests include mathematical statistics, machine learning theory, and applied probability. Recently, I have been working on statistical inference of combinatorial structures in data.

Before joining Georgia Tech, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University from 2018 to 2019. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics and Statistics from MIT in 2018, and B.S. and M.A. degrees in Mathematics from UCLA in 2013.
