I’m a fourth year PhD student in statistics at Stanford University, where I’m grateful to be advised by Emmanuel Candès and supported by the John and Fannie Hertz Foundation. While I’m not working on the theory of distribution-free uncertainty quantification, I apply these methods as a consultant to The Washington Post elections team. Before starting my PhD, I spent 3 years at D.E. Shaw Research (“DESRES”) where I worked on improving polarizable force fields for all-atom simulations. I joined DESRES after earning my B.S. in Mathematical and Computational Science and M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University in 2017.
