About Me

Hello there! I’m a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in Operations Research at Stanford University MS&E, where I’m very fortunate to be advised by Itai Ashlagi. My research interests are in the design and analysis of marketplace algorithms. In particular, my PhD works focus on the interplay of learning and strategic incentives in waitlist mechanisms. Broadly speaking, I use tools from mechanism design, optimization, and machine learning.

In Fall 2022, I will be joining Uber as an Applied Scientist. I have previously interned at Meta and Lyft.
