Hi, I'm Lalit Jain, a postdoc in mathematics at the University of Michigan.
I'm currently a member of Professor Anna Gilbert's group in the Mathematics Department. These days I spend most of my time thinking about metric learning, ordinal embedding, ranking and bandits, active learning systems, and random graphs. My PhD advisor was Professor Jordan Ellenberg and I also worked closely with Professor Robert Nowak.

Previously, I was a Teach for America corps member in San Francisco at Ida B. Wells Continuation High School. I used to teach for the San Francisco and Oakland Math Circles and I was an organizer for Madison Math Circles. Educational equity is something I am very passionate about and love to discuss.
