I am a fifth year Ph.D. student at the department of Data Sciences and Operations,
Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California (USC). I am on the job market this year. My current research interests are in the area of mechanism design, optimization algorithms, machine learning, and game theory with applications to revenue management, pricing, and online platforms.
My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Hamid Nazerzadeh.
During my Ph.D. studies, I worked as a summer research intern at Google, in 2015 and 2016. In my internships, I developed and implemented several algorithms and mechanisms for Google’s Ad Exchange.
Here are links to my CV and Google Scholar page.
I will join the Operations Management group
at MIT Sloan School of Management
as an assistant professor, starting Fall 2018.
I will join the algorithms research groups at Google Research
in New York as a post-doctoral researcher, starting June 2017.
I have been awarded a USC PhD Achievement Award for 2017.
