About Me

I'm a PhD student, advised by Maurice Herlihy since 2016 (and previously by Paul Valiant from 2013-2015), and the Chief Science Officer at Geopipe, which is NSF-backed and has been featured in XRDS. My research interests center on applying the algorithmic lens to interdisciplinary problems. I also have non-computational research interests in Solid Biomass, Sustainable Heating, and development of Local Energy Economy.

Current Research

I am currently thinking about problems in distributed access control, performant data-structures for transactional memory systems, and large-scale reconstruction from geographic data. Some recent publications include:
