About MeI am currently a third-year PhD student in the Theory and Economics group of the EECS department at Northwestern, where I am advised by Ronen Gradwohl. My research interests lie in the intersection of computer science and economics, specifically algorithmic game theory and mechanism design.
I received my undergraduate degrees in mathematics and economics from USC. While there, I also worked with David Kempe on social networks.
- Algorithmic Game Theory - Mechanism design, equilibrium computation
- Privacy in Games - Differential privacy, mechanisms for privacy-aware agents, markets for private data
- Social Networks - Information diffusion, network inference, economic aspects of the Internet
- Molecular Programming - Chemical reaction networks
