I'm a second year PhD candidate in the Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization department at Georgia Tech. My main interests are on the intersection between convex geometry and algebraic geometry. Of recent interest to me are sums-of-squares type problems in algebra, and stable polynomials which appear in convex optimization. I am advised by Greg Blekherman.

I did my undergraduate education at Caltech in mathematics and computer science. In addition to mathematics, I also make computers do things (like rendering this website here), crocheting and rock climbing.

I am trying to write a blog to keep me honest about what I've been reading/thinking about. Check it out here.
