I am a post-doctoral researcher at Google Research in New York. I will be starting a tenure-track position in Operations Management group at MIT Sloan School of Management in July 2018. 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.
