I received my Ph.D. from Princeton, where I was advised by Sanjeev Arora. I focus on machine learning from a theoretical perspective. Check out my research and blog. My CV is here. Here are links to ML theory at Princeton and Sanjeev Arora’s research group.
I will be at the IAS in Fall 2019 to participate in the special year on Theoretical Machine Learning. In Spring 2020, I will be starting as a Phillip Griffiths Research Assistant Professor in Mathematics at Duke University.

I like math and writing, and I care deeply about education. To me, math and writing have a lot in common: they both call on us to be precise, and to ask and answer the “why” questions in the world. Neither of them require much more than pencil and paper, but that’s enough to make beautiful things.
I’m fascinated by human and artificial intelligence. To me, the quest for AI is not just a mathematical and technological endeavor, but also a deeply introspective one.
