About me

I am a 5th year PhD student at the MIT Operations Research Center, advised by Prof. Retsef Levi. My two main research areas are food safety (supply chain analytics, big data, network applications, schema matching, optimization), and auctions (mechanism design and online algorithms, with a focus on internet advertising).

I received my BA in Mathematics and BSc in Operations Research from Cornell University.
