I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at the Naveen Jindal School of Management at University of Texas, Dallas. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University. I graduated from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University with a Ph.D. in Computer Science, where I was co-advised by Prof. Srikanth Jagabathula and Prof. Lakshminarayanan Subramanian.
