I am an associate professor at Northeastern University. Before coming here, I spent a year at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago and a year at the Simons Institute at UC Berkeley. My main research interests are algorithms for data streams and massively parallel computation, discrete and continuous optimization, differentially private algorithms, machine learning algorithms.

I got my Ph.D. in computer science from Princeton. I was very fortunate to have Prof. Moses Charikar as my advisor. Before coming to Princeton, I studied computer science and math (courses 6 and 18) at MIT.
