I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management. My current research interests are in the area of machine learning, statistical learning theory, mechanism design, and optimization algorithms with applications to revenue management, pricing, and online markets. Before joining MIT, I spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Google Research in New York where I worked with the Market Algorithm team to develop, design, and test new mechanisms and algorithms for online marketplaces.

Here are links to my CV and Google Scholar page.
