Hello, and welcome to my personal website. I am a Staff Software Engineer at Google Research currently focusing on topics related to privacy-safe information extraction (both large-scale and in low-data regimes), data management systems, and applied ML. Prior to joining Google, I earned my Ph.D. at UCLA under the guidance of Miodrag Potkonjak, where I explored methods for hardware security and low power circuit and system design.
You can find more information about me and my work below and at the following links.
Work done while at Google.
