I am a 2nd year computer science PhD student at Stanford working in Jure Leskovec's lab. I like using statistical and computational methods to attack problems that hurt people in concrete ways: two areas I am particularly interested in are discrimination/inequality and healthcare. Before beginning my PhD I spent a year earning a master's in statistics at Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, and another year working as a statistician at Coursera and 23andMe. I did my undergrad and master's at Stanford in physics and computer science.
