I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining the Mechanical Engineering Department at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Fall 2024!


I am a Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley, where I work closely with my advisor Professor Somayeh Sojoudi on interdisciplinary problems in machine learning, optimization, control theory, and game theory. Please see my CV for more on my background, including awards, professional activities, and outreach.

Research interests: I am interested in the development and analysis of safe and reliable computational methods by applying rigorous mathematics to interdisciplinary problems in the areas of machine learning, optimization, control theory, and game theory. My latest projects surround provable safety for neural networks using robust optimization theory, stability guarantees for infinite-dimensional evolutionary games using functional analysis, and robust control of distributed systems using optimal transport theory. I encourage you to look at my publications for more details.

Fun fact: I have an Erdős number of \(3\) (Paul Erdős \(\sim\) Fan Chung \(\sim\) Andrea L. Bertozzi \(\sim\) Brendon G. Anderson).
