I'm currently a postdoc in Computer Science at Princeton University with the theory group. My main research interests are algorithms and algorithmic game theory, and mechanism design in particular. I completed my Ph.D. in 2014 within the Theory of Computation Group, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT, where my advisor was Costis Daskalakis. I obtained my B.A. in Math from Cornell University in 2010. In January 2017, I will be joining Princeton as an Assistant Professor! Prior to that, I'll spend Fall 2016 at the Simons Institute as a Research Fellow with the Algorithms and Uncertainty program. |
