I am a third-year PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Computer Science. My research interests include Markov chain Monte Carlo methods for problems in statistical physics and machine learning, analytic and enumerative combinatorics, and graph mining. My adviser is Dana Randall, and I am generously supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. I also coach the Georgia Tech ACM Programming Team. As an undergraduate I studied computer science and mathematics at the University of Kentucky. See my CV for more details.
