about me

I am a Computer Scientist researching Data Privacy.

I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Columbia University working with Rachel Cummings. I completed my Ph.D. at Purdue University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Elena Grigorescu and Jeremiah Blocki. During my Ph.D. I was a Research Intern at Analog Devices and a Student Researcher at Google Research.

My research explores the intersection of data privacy and theoretical computer science and its impact on society. My research interests include but are not limited to (1) the design of differentially private algorithms in resource-constrained settings, where the resource can be time or space, (2) the interplay of differential privacy with social science, law, and policy.

I am always happy to chat about my research. Feel free to contact me at "tm3391" followed by my current university dot edu.
