[Google Scholar Profile]
Greetings! I am a final year Ph.D student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, being advised by Elliot Anshelevich. Broadly speaking, I am interested in Theoretical Computer Science, particularly problems involving the design of algorithms and incentives for large systems that interact with self-interested agents.

Specifically, my research tackles problems in the following areas:
  • Pricing Mechanisms for Markets
  • Optimization under Uncertainty and Risk-Aversion
  • Social Networks and Coalition Formation
  • Algorithmic Game Theory

During the first half of 2016, I was an intern at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK, where I worked with Peter Key and Ian Kash on the Economics of the Cloud. If you are interested in my work, please do get in touch.
