I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at San Diego State University. I'm broadly interested in theoretical computer science.

My main research focuses on graph and approximation algorithms that arise in streaming, distributed, and sublinear settings. I am also interested in other directions in theory such as parameterized algorithms, and sketching algorithms for data analysis. For more details, check out my research papers, CV , and Google Scholar.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I was fortunate to be advised by Andrew McGregor. I also spent a year as a postdoc at Boston College, working with Hsin-Hao Su.



Recently, I started working on a side project that develops a scalable and accessible library for data and data streams. Here is a demo that detects heavy-hitters on Reddit.
