I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Chicago. I am broadly interested in causal inference, random graphs, representation learning, and differential privacy. I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Victor Veitch. Previously, I completed my undergraduate studies at Duke University, where I double majored in mathematics and statistical science, and pursued research opportunities in probability theory, statistical learning theory, and mathematical biology. Prior to Duke, I was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, where I nurtured my passion for finding rigorous proofs and explanations, by participating in numerous math contests and olympiads.
