I am a fourth year graduate student in the Mathematics Department at UC Davis, working under the advisorship of Zhaojun Bai.

I am currently researching the duality relationship between Rayleigh quotient problems and parameterized eigenvalue optimization problems. More generally, I am interested in convex optimization, nonlinear programming, and optimization applications including image segmentation, model predictive control, signal processing.

When I'm not studying, you can find me running, cooking, listening to podcasts (e.g., This American Life, StartUp, RadioLab, TED Radio Hour), or brewing beer.
