About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University. Before joining Carnegie Mellon University, I spent a wonderful year as a Stein's Fellow / Lecturer at Stanford Statistics Department. I got my Ph.D. in Statistics at Berkeley Statistics Department advised by two amazing supervisors Aditya Guntuboyina and Martin Wainwright; I was also associated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research group (BAIR).

My research interests lie broadly in the span of statistics, optimization and machine learning. More specifically, I have been developing methods appropriate for valid inference with high dimensional and structured data. I am also interested in understanding the interplay between statistical accuracy and computational properties. Recently, I got excited about exploring genetics data.

Here is a current copy of my CV.


I am currently looking for students and postdocs interested in high dimensional statistics and machine learning. Please email a CV to apply.
