I’m a graduate student in computer science at UC Berkeley, advised by Prof. Ras Bodik and Prof. Nir Yosef. I’m currently living in Seattle, visiting the PLSE lab at the University of Washington. I’m interested in formal methods, program synthesis, verification, and systems biology.

I have completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at EPFL, where my advisor was Prof. Viktor Kuncak.

My CV can be found here.
