About Me

I received my Ph.D. in Machine Learning in 2015 at Carnegie Mellon University under the supervision of Prof. John Lafferty. I have B.S. in electrical engineering and computer science with a minor in mathematics from UC Berkeley. I was a fellow in the 2013 Eric and Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship . I was also a research intern at the IECA group (now known as the Machine Learning group) in Microsoft Research Asia in 2012.

I am a statistician whose main focus is statistical machine learning. My research studies emerging estimation problems in the analysis of large and complex data and designs methods that have both scalable computation and strong theoretical guarantees. I am particularly interested in high-dimensional statistics, network data analysis, and machine learning problems with economics applications.
