I am a Ph.D student in the Operations Research Center at MIT, where I am advised by Prof. Vivek Farias. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo, where I majored in computer science and combinatorics and optimization. During my studies, I have had the opportunity to intern at several tech companies including Dropbox, Snap, Bloomberg, and Grail.

Recently, as part of COVID-19 Policy Alliance, I have worked on county-level COVID-19 forecasting, as well as developing a text-messaging system to track COVID cases in nursing homes.
