I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University, working with Professor Shane Henderson. Prior to coming to Cornell, I received a B.S. in Industrial Engineering in 2014 from the University of Pittsburgh. During my time at the University of Pittsburgh I also completed three co-op rotations at Heinz North America working in supply chain logistics.

Research Interests

In general, I am interested in the use of simulation for decision-making under uncertainty. My current research deals with fundamental questions about ranking-and-selection procedures and their guarantees. I am also interested in the implementation of ranking-and-selection procedures in parallel computing environments for large-scale simulation optimization. Other side interests of mine include baseball analytics and chess.
