"In God we trust, others must provide data."


I received my PhD in the Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics at the University of California, Davis where I was advised by Professor Jesús A. De Loera. I work in optimization, applied convex geometry, and mathematical data science. I am currently a CAM Assistant Professor (post-doc) in the UCLA Mathematics Department where my mentor is Professor Deanna Needell.
