I was born in Green Bay, WI and moved to Wichita, KS when I was nine. I attended Harvard University, graduating with highest honors in mathematics. Afterwards, I attended Oxford University as the von Clemm fellow and studied theology. I received my PhD from UC Berkeley in computer science where I was advised by Luca Trevisan. Subsequently I was the Simons Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theoretical Computer Science at Princeton University.
