I am a Ph.D student in the Operations Research Center at MIT, where I am advised by Prof. Vivek Farias. Broadly, I am interested in developing methodologies for decision making problems under uncertainty, focusing on bridging the gap between theory and practice. I am particularly interested in the problem of algorithmic fairness. 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.
