I am currently a Ph.D student at Cornell University in the Operations Research Department working with Professor Jim Dai. I received a Bachelors degree in Math and Statistics from the University of Toronto.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in stochastic modeling and applied probability. My thesis work focuses on applying Stein's method to the study of steady-state approximations of stochastic systems. These approximations include both first order approximations such as mean-field/fluid approximations, and second order approximations such as diffusion approximations. However, I am also interested in Markov decision processes and stochastic control theory. With respect to application domains, I am interested in fleet management questions in ridesharing systems such as Uber, Lyft, or Didi.
