I am a third-year PhD student at Columbia University's IEOR Department, studying computational game theory. I am fortunate to be advised by Christian Kroer. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Previously, I was a Research Fellow in David Parkes' group at Harvard SEAS, studying reinforcement learning for automated mechanism design. Before that, I was an Applied Research Software Engineer at Strategy Robot where I designed and implemented game-theoretic AI for the Department of Defense.

I completed my undergraduate education at Carnegie Mellon University, where I had the fortune of being advised and mentored by Anil Ada, John Dickerson, and Ariel Procaccia.
