I am an Assistant Professor of Information and Decision Sciences in the College of Business Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I obtained my PhD in EECS from UC Berkeley in 2015. From 2015-2017, I was a postdoc in the Social Algorithms lab at the Management Science and Engineering Dept. of Stanford University.

I am broadly interested in market design and the theory and applications of reinforcement learning, particularly in operations management.

My recent focus has been on using tools from decision sciences and artificial intelligence to help people navigate the changing landscape of the nature of work, and to enable modern labor and service platforms to effectively develop and leverage the skills and competencies of individuals. 

I have worked on i) developing matching algorithms for labor platforms that learn the skills of new workers in order to match them to the right jobs, ii) designing mechanisms that incentivize truthful behavior in reputation systems for online platforms, and iii) developing simple algorithms for crowdsourced democratic decision-making in complex domains like deciding the national budget, tax brackets, etc.
I am teaching the graduate elective on Managing Service Operations in Fall 2017 at UIC Business.
