Hello! I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Stanford Unversity. Before joining Stanford in 2015, I was part of the MIT Department of Mathematics. I completed my Ph.D. in mathematics at Princeton University in 2010. My advisor was Benny Sudakov.

My work is supported by a Packard Fellowship, an NSF CAREER award, and an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. I was previously supported by a Simons Fellowship.

**Research Interests:**

Extremal combinatorics, algebraic and probabilistic methods in combinatorics, Ramsey theory,
graph theory, combinatorial geometry, and applications of combinatorics to computer science.
