Postdoctoral Scientist,

I am a postdoctoral scientist at Amazon within the Supply Chain Optimization Technologies (SCOT) group. I will join the Department of Data Sciences and Operations at USC’s Marshall School of Business as an assistant professor in Fall 2023.

My research lies at the intersection of operations research and economics, focusing on algorithm and incentive design for smart societal systems. More specifically, I am interested in developing tools for these people-centric systems, with an emphasis on incorporating more realistic models of behavior under incentives.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Operations Research at Cornell University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Professor Siddhartha Banerjee. Prior to that, I obtained my B.S.E. in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University, with a minor in Applied Mathematics.
