I'm a fifth-year PhD student at the Khoury College of Computer Sciences of Northeastern University, advised by Jonathan Ullman. My interests generally lie in CS Theory and Algorithms, though I'm currently working in Differential Privacy. I'm also interested in Learning Theory, and my recent focus has been on the intersection of Privacy and Learning.

I was a Research Intern at IBM Research for Summer 2020, where I worked with Thomas Steinke. I visited University of Waterloo in Fall 2019, where I was hosted by Gautam Kamath. I was also a visiting graduate student at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing for their Spring 2019 program on Data Privacy: Foundations and Applications.

Prior to joining Northeastern University, I was an undergrad at the University of Southern California, graduating in May 2016 with a bachelor's in Computer Science, and a minor in Mathematics. At USC, I had a wonderful opportunity to work with David Kempe on problems related to graphs.

Apart from Maths and Theory, I also like staying close to cars and motorsport, for example, by working on a particular car, and by simracing. Other than that, I like watching soccer and tennis on the telly. Finally, I love anime, so always looking for cool recommendations.
