I am a third year Ph.D. student in Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell Tech where I am advised by Huseyin Topaloglu. My research interests include algorithm design and revenue management. I am especially interested in resource allocation problems with applications in online marketplaces, urban mobility, and the sharing economy.
I received my B.A. in Math from Yale in 2013. I spent the following two years at Analytics Operations Eng. working in operations and management consulting. Please see my C.V. for details. I am supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
