About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate working with Elena Grigorescu and Jeremiah Blocki in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University .

I am broadly interested in differential privacy and algorithms. My current projects focus on the intersection of sublinear algorithms and differential privacy.
