I’m a junior (3rd year) undergrad at Cornell University, and a recipient of the Tata Scholarship and the Telluride Scholarship. I study Computer Science and Applied Mathematics with a focus on Machine Learning and Optimization. Additionally, I’m interested in environmental and economic sustainability.

I live in the Telluride House at Cornell, research at the Computational Sustainability lab, and volunteer as the Research Lead in Cornell’s Association of Computer Science Undergraduates.

Computation and human thought have at least 1 common feature: both have inputs and outputs.



May 2019

Received a Course Staff Award as a Teaching Assistant for CS 4850: Mathematical Foundations of the Information Age.


Our work on “GPU-accelerated Principal-Agent Game for Scalable Citizen Science” will appear at ACM COMPASS 2019.

  • Presented this work at the 2019 Ivy League Undergraduate Research Symposium at UPenn and won the Outstanding Poster Presenter Award.
  • Also presented this work at Cornell CIS’s BOOM 2019 project symposium. I was awarded a Sponsor Award by Air Liquide and the Statistics Award by the Cornell’s Statistics Department.

Apr 2019

Selected among 200 student researchers worldwide to attend the 2019 Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Heidelberg, Germany. Looking forward to meet senior and fellow young researchers in Computer Science and Mathematics this September!


Will be working with ASAPP and Kilian Weinberger this summer as a Research Engineer Intern.
