About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Data Sciences and Operations, Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.

I am broadly interested in design and analysis of statistical methods for large-scale data, high-dimensional inference, network analysis, non-convex optimization and personalized decision-making. For more details, please see my publications.

Prior to joining USC, I was NSF CSoI postdoctoral fellow with worksite at Stanford University and UC Berkeley. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University advised by Andrea Montanari.
