I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. I am member of the Engineering and Systems Design pillar (department) working primarily with Dr. Georgios Piliouras. I recently graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). I completed my PhD in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO) at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) while working with Dr. Craig Tovey.

My current research includes:
  • Online optimization and learning
  • Effect of manipulation in mechanism design for
    • One-sided assignment problem
    • Two-sided assignment problem (stable marriages, student placement and college admissions)
    • Facility location
    • Voting
  • The yolk aka the generalized median set
  • Path finding in tessellations of the plane

More generally, my research interests are:
  • Machine learning
  • Game theory (and applications to economics)
  • Integer programming
  • Graph theory (specifically coloring)
