A little bit about me: I'm a 2nd year PhD student in Applied Math here at UCLA. My research interests lie mostly in machine learning and big data. I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2014.Some fun facts about me:
- I spend a lot of my free time sewing, and make a lot of my own clothes. Math (especially geometry) is actually quite helpful in this endeavor!
- I'm an avid reader (see below for a some recommended readings!)
- I'm also part of a local dance performance group -- ask me if you want to see our videos!
