She worked with Professors David Aldous and Joan Bruna and was supported by the NSERC CGS fellowship. While at Berkeley, she also did statistical consulting, advising on methods and analysis for experimentation and interpretation, and was on the data science teams at Pinterest and Stitch Fix. She was a lecturer of discrete mathematics, as well as a graduate instructor for probability and statistics and intro CS theory. Prior to that, she earned her MS in mathematics at the University of Toronto with highest distinction, advised by Professor Balazs Szegedy in the area of graph limits, and earned her BSc there in pure mathematics.
