About Me

I am a software engineer at Microsoft on the Commerce Catalog team in Cloud + AI. I graduated from Amherst College with a Bachelor of Arts in computer science and mathematics. At Amherst, I was an undergraduate researcher in the Data* Mammoths research and learning group led by Matteo Riondato. My research interests are in databases, data mining, and machine learning.

As for hobbies, I enjoy playing tennis, ice hockey, guitar, and cello.

2023-04-06 DMKD/DAMI: ROhAN was accepted for publication in Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (S.I. for ECML PKDD 2023). The work is based on my honors thesis, and I collaborated with Maryam and Matteo to submit the extended version. We introduce a new class of null models for statistically-sound KDD.
