Algorithms for Optimized Cooperation

I’m an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of economics, optimization, and statistics. In particular, I am interested in problems relating to mechanism and market design, and I hope to develop theoretical foundations that can be readily used to improve and inform the design of real-world markets.

I am very fortunate to have been advised by Aravind Srinivasan, John Dickerson, William Gasarch, Scott Duke Kominers, and Nika Haghtalab.

Some of my other interests include moving around (e.g. climbing, running, hiking, swimming, etc.) and food (e.g. cooking, bread-making, cool produce, etc.). Also check out OpenKPD, an open-source platform for kidney exchange simulation that I developed and currently maintain.
