Short Bio

I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering Department, at the University of Southern California. I am privileged to have Professor Ashutosh Nayyar as my advisor. My research interests include dynamic mechanism design, auction theory and game theory.

I completed my MSc in Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Behnam Jafarpour in Subsurface Energy & Environmental Systems (SEES) research group. During my MSc studies, my research focused on applied signal processing and optimization with applications to generalized oilfield development optimization.
