I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Society and Algorithms Lab at Stanford MS&E. I obtained my PhD in EECS at UC Berkeley in Dec 2015. At Berkeley, I was affiliated with the BLISS and the NetEcon groups.
I develop mechanisms and algorithms for optimizing platforms that leverage human resources, e.g., ride-sharing, home-sharing, online labor markets, crowdsourced policy-making, prediction markets etc., using tools and techniques from statistical learning theory, dynamic programming, optimization, and game theory. In general, I am interested in problems that involve decision-making under uncertainty and engineering collective behavior in large-scale multi-agent systems.
