I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Data Science at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Data Science at NYU, where I am a core member of the Math and Data group.
I study statistics, probability, and machine learning. I am especially interested in statistical and computational problems arising from data with geometric structure, and my recent work focuses on optimal transport.
I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics and Statistics from MIT, under the supervision of Philippe Rigollet. For the 2019-20 academic year, I will be a visiting member at the Institute for Advanced Study, participating in the special year on optimization, statistics, and theoretical machine learning.
I am actively seeking Ph.D. students. If you are interested in working with me, please apply to the graduate program in data science or mathematics and mention my name in your application. Unfortunately, I cannot respond to inquiries from students who have not yet been admitted to NYU.
