Hello! I am currently a postdoctoral scholar in Caltech's Department of Computing & Mathematical Sciences, supervised by Joel Tropp.
In my research, I analyze and apply randomized algorithms, particularly Monte Carlo algorithms and algorithms for randomized numerical linear algebra. This means I do two things:
- I analyze randomized algorithms --- which algorithms have the fastest runtimes and give the most accurate results?
- I apply randomized algorithms to solve problems in chemistry, astronomy, and geophysics with the help of subject area experts.
