## About me

I did my PhD research with Surya Ganguli as a member of the Neural Dynamics and Computation Lab at Stanford University and focused on the emerging field of high dimensional statistics, where inference accuracy is hindered by a high dimensional parameter space (the curse of dimensionality).

By treating high dimensional inference using mathematics from disordered system, I have worked on developing a mathematical descriptions for how classical methods such as maximum likelihood and maximum-a-posteriori should be "smoothed" to optimize high dimensional regression.

I am currently doing postdoctoral work mentored by Haim Sompolinsky as part of the Center for Brain Science at Harvard University. My broad research interest is in developing theories to understand *high dimensional inference*, *neural networks*, and *complex systems* with network structure such as those found in quantitative biology and neuroscience.

I also enjoy recreational rock climbing, running, and playing guitar.
