Short Bio

I am a third-year PhD student at
Stanford University in the Computer Science Department. I am fortunate to be co-advised by Ashish Goel (primary) and Tim Roughgarden. In May 2016 I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S in Computer Science, where my research supervisor was Tuomas Sandholm. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the intersection of economics and computation. My recent work has included mechanism design, computational social choice, resource allocation, and markets.
