I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at TTIC. I was a postdoc at Harvard University hosted by Prof. Michael Mitzenmacher and received my PhD in 2019 from the University of Maryland under Prof. MohammadTaghi Hajiaghayi. You can find my resume here.

I'm on the academic job market this year.

I have a broad interest in theoretical computer science and its applications in computational biology, machine learning, economics, and artificial intelligence. The emphasis of my research is on fine-grained algorithm design and algorithmic game theory.

Professional experience

I used to be very good at competitive programming. I won a Silver medal at IOI 2007, was a team member for IOI 2008 (didn't participate in the IOI due to visa issues), and was an ACM-ICPC worldfinalist two times. Also, I was a Topcoder red and I won a CF round.
