I am a postdoctoral researcher at IBM Research - Almaden. I just completed my PhD in the Computer Science Theory Group in Harvard University's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. I was very lucky to have Salil Vadhan as my advisor at Harvard. Before that I was a student at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.

I am interested in many things, including differential privacy and pseudorandomness.

I was a Teaching Fellow for CS225: Pseudorandomness taught by Salil Vadhan in Spring 2015. In Fall 2013 I was a TF for CS229r: Algorithms for Big Data taught by Jelani Nelson. In Fall 2012 I was head TF for CS121: Introduction to the Theory of Computation taught by Salil Vadhan. As an undergraduate I was involved in teaching several mathematics classes at the University of Canterbury. For the 2011-2012 academic year I was on exchange at Stanford University's Computer Science Department. I was a non-resident tutor in Lowell House.
