About Me

I am a postdoctoral candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Boston University and in the College of Computer and Information Sciences at Northeastern University.


I completed my PhD in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. My advisor was the wonderful Anna Gilbert.

I am interested in privacy-preserving data analysis. Specifically, recently I have been interested in performing fundamental statistical tasks under differential privacy and its variations. My work has applications not only to privacy but also to robust data analysis and controlling false discovery rates.
