I am a Motwani Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford Theory Group. My research lies in the intersection of Computer Science and Economics.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Duke University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Kamesh Munagala. During Fall 2022, I was a J.P. Morgan Research Fellow at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, UC Berkeley. During Summers 2020 and 2021, I was a Research Intern at Google Research.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests
My research lies in the intersection of Computer Science and Economics. I am particularly interested in using mathematical or algorithmic techniques to provide approximately efficient or fair economic solutions in fields including Social Choice, Mechanism Design, Information Design, and Market Design, especially when the exact optima are infeasible due to selfishness of agents, lack of information, computational hardness, etc.
