I am a PostDoctoral Associate at MIT from 2012 - 2013.
I completed my PhD in Statistics from Stanford University in 2012 under the supervision of Trevor Hastie.
I will join the faculty of Columbia University (Dept of Statistics) as a tenure track Assistant professor starting Fall 2013.
I spent two enjoyable summers (in 2009 and 2010) as a Research Intern at the Machine Learning & Statistics Group at Yahoo! Research, Santa Clara, CA. I worked with Deepak Agarwal on statistical modeling and algorithmics for recommender-system problems.
