I am currently a postdoctoral researcher with Dimitris Papailiopoulos at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am also affiliated with the Institute for Foundations of Data Science.

My research focuses on understanding statistical and geometric properties of machine learning and optimization algorithms, as well as designing efficient distributed algorithms. I received a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the guidance of Nigel Boston.

I firmly believe in escaping the academic bubble and giving back to the community. I previously volunteered for Schools of Hope and Discovery Volunteering. I currently volunteer with Centro Hispano.

In my free time I often bake. You can find recipes I am fond of in my dissertation (no, really).
