I'm an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Queens College, CUNY in New York City. My Ph.D. and Masters is in Statistics from Wharton / UPenn. My doctoral thesis and current research program concentrates on improving the design of randomized experiments. We recently proved Fisher's blocking designs are optimal nearly 100yr after Fisher proposed blocking (see here).

Before graduate school, I was a software engineer building web applications. I still use these skills to run social science experiments and I'm interested in investigating racism and other types of discrimination (e.g. see here). My undergrad was in mathematics & computational science at Stanford.

I have a special love for teaching and mentoring. I helped to create and now administer the undergrad Data Science and Statistics concentration. My undergraduate alumni have gone on to data science, data engineering, data analyst and actuary careers at Wells Fargo, Webster Bank, Amazon, NASA, Grant Thornton, various tech startups, among others as well as various PhD programs at NYU, Univ. of Washington, Drexel and Columbia.

I can't maintain all the pages of this website, so most of their information are all contained in my CV. For a printable PDF, click here. My github is here. I'm also available for private tutoring (in advanced mathematics, computer science, data science) and data science consulting which I've done for Tesorio and Coatue Management among others. This website recently required some downtime to merge to a new web server (which now also serves my website) but luckily we're back up now.

I've published in a variety of fields. My interests loosely are statistical learning / machine learning, improving the design of randomized experiments, crowdsourcing, and biomedical applications.
