About Me

I am a postdoc working with Mayur Naik at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research is at the intersection of programming languages, software engineering and automated reasoning. I draw on techniques from machine learning and formal methods to solve problems in program synthesis, verification, and static analysis. My goal is to build theoretically well-understood, rigorously evaluated, and practically useful tools to help programmers create better software with less effort.

I was previously a Ph.D. student in the same department, advised by Rajeev Alur, where I contributed to formalizing the SyGuS synthesis framework, and designed domain-specific languages and programming abstractions for stream processing.
