Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist at Meta where I focus on developing fast and efficient optimization algorithms for large-scale machine learning problems. Prior to joining Meta, I received my PhD at Stanford University in 2016. My thesis was about using randomized linear algebra as a tool to develop optimization and machine learning algorithms for large-scale data applications.
