I am a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University, advised by Professor Percy Liang. I am supported by the Stanford Graduate Fellowship.

Previously, I received a BA in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in 2016. Between my undergraduate and graduate studies, I worked at D. E. Shaw Research.
