Here's what I've been up to lately.
Watch me present my recent paper "Maximum Coverage in the Data Stream Model: Parameterized and Generalized" at ICDT 2021.
I'm a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science at Rutgers University advised by Martin Farach-Colton and Michael Bender. I am supported by a NSF Computing Innovation Fellowship. I completed my PhD at UMass Amherst in the College of Information and Computer Science, where I was advised by Andrew McGregor. I study CS theory - particularly graphs, randomized algorithms, complexity, and applications of these topics to real-world problems in areas like external memory, filesystems, and networking.
