Hello, in July I joined the University of British Columbia as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics. Prior to this I completed an NSF Postdoc in Mathematics at the University of Michigan. I received my PhD in the Applied and Computational Mathematics program at Caltech, including two years as a visiting researcher at Stanford University. My research interests lie in applied probability, high-dimensional inference, geometric functional analysis, random matrix theory, compressive sensing, matrix completion, and big data analysis. A common challenge that I address in my research is how to find low-dimensional signals in big, noisy data, both in theory and practice.

I live with my wife, son, and daughter in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

PhD Advisor — Professor Emmanuel Candès was my advisor at Caltech.
