I expect to complete my Ph.D. in Spring 2021. I am currently seeking an Assistant Professor or postdoctoral position. Here are my: CV, Research Philosophy, Teaching Philosophy, and Diversity Philosophy.
Research Interests
  • String algorithms, succinct data structures, and text compression.
  • Computational complexity, especially 'fine-grained' complexity.
