About me

I'm currently a third-year Ph.D. student at Umich. I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Salar Fattahi. My research focus on understanding the pratical success of gradient-based algorithms based on trajectory analysis. I welcome future collaborations. Please feel free to contact me via Email!
