About

I am a third-year Computer Sciences PhD student at UW-Madison, where I am co-advised by Aws Albarghouthi and Loris D’Antoni.

My work is motivated by the question of how we can ensure that technology – especially machine learning – is deployed in fair, trustworthy, and socially responsible ways. In particular, I’m interested in the idea that machine learning outcomes often hinge on arbitrary factors in data collection and model training. My research so far has addressed this question by certifying test-time model robustness to small perturbations in the training dataset.
