Quick Bio

I received 4th year combined master's degree in Statistics, and Magna Cum Laude with Highest Honors for bachelor's degree in Physics and Mathematics at Harvard University. Currently, I am a PhD student in Statistics with a focus on robotics at UC Berkeley.

Detailed Bio

I am a PhD student in Statistics with a focus on robotics at UC Berkeley, grateful to be advised by Prof. Claire J. Tomlin and Prof. Zachary N. Sunberg (CU Boulder). I am interested in research opportunities spanning control theory, sequential decision making, and machine learning, with applications in robotics. I am grateful to be supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

During my time at Harvard University, I received 4th year combined master's degree in Statistics, and Magna Cum Laude with Highest Honors for bachelor's degree in Physics and Mathematics.

I had been advised by Prof. Samuel Kou for my statistics research (2016-2018) and Prof. Amir Yacoby for my physics research (2015), and received a lot of help and inspiration from Prof. Joseph Blitzstein for studying statistics and pursuing joint AB/AM, Prof. Donhee Ham for studying and pursuing physics, and Prof. Subir Sachdev for physics concentration advising.

Extra

Outside of school work and research, I love photographing, playing electric guitar, composing music, choreographing (urban dance, hip hop), snowboarding, and designing. You can check out some of my works here.
