#### About Me

I am a second year PhD student at Cornell University's Center for Applied Mathematics where I am fortunate to be advised by Ziv Scully. I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College in 2022. My research interests include queueing theory and stochastic optimization and my current projects include tail-optimal scheduling with unknown job sizes and approximation algorithms for multi-fidelity stochastic search problems. In 2024, I was awarded the NDSEG (accepted) and NSF GRFP (declined) graduate fellowships. Previously, I have been a full time software engineer at Meta (2021).
