Brief Research Statement :My research interests include the fields of computational game theory, economics, mechanism design, distributed search, automated trading, machine learning, multi-agent simulation, and online privacy. I am interested in each of these fields individually, as well as their intersections. I am also interested in studying the issues preventing the technical and theoretical advances in these fields from realizing their full potential to impact the way a wider population navigates social and economic systems.
Short Biography :
I currently work at a digital advertising startup called Rocket Fuel.
Before that I was a PhD candidate in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I was one of the first members of a new computer science program called Computation Organization and Society (COS), which emphasizes the "last-mile" issues involved in bringing computational advances to the real-world. I grew up in Huntington, NY on Long Island. I did my undergraduate studies at Brown University, where I graduated with honors from the Computer Science Department.
