CS @ Cornell University

Hello!

I’m a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Éva Tardos and Prof. Jon Kleinberg. My interests are broadly in theoretical computer science, particularly algorithmic game theory, mechanism design, and networks. Currently, I’m working on generalizing submodularity to ordered sequences and lists, with applications in diversification of recommender systems.

Previously, I graduated from Princeton University with an A.B. in Chemistry and minors in Applied Math and Computer Science, where I worked with Prof. Matt Weinberg on Bayesian auction design for multi-item revenue maximization. I also wrote my senior thesis in physical organic chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Robert Knowles.

Non-academic interests (many starting with a C, some supported by images): caffeine, cats, colouring-of-hair, crafting, dance, yoga
