I am an Assistant Professor of Operations Management in MIT Sloan School Management affiliated with the ORC.
I was a post-doc fellow at Harvard Business School, advised by Alvin E. Roth.
I am a recipient of the NSF CAREER award and a Franz Edelman finalist.
Research interests: I’m interested in market and mechanism design, game theory and matching.
I also work with Vahideh Manshadi who is a Post-doc at MIT.

Kidney exchange (both cycles and chains). To use (i) one should have cplex and (ii) please cite Individual rationality and participation in large scale, multi-hospital kidney exchange” and Nonsimultaneous Chains and Dominos in Kidney Paired Donation – Revisited. The software either generates simulated patient/donor pairs as well as a compatibility matrix, or alternatively gets as an input such data. It finds an allocation that maximizes the number of transplants using cycles and chains each of a different bounded length.
