Hi! I am a postdoctoral researcher working with the operations research team in Google Cambridge. In July 2019, I will be joining the Decision, Risk, and Operations division at Columbia Business School as an assistant professor.

In July 2018, I completed my Ph.D. from the MIT Operations Research Center, with the pleasure of being advised by David Simchi-Levi.

I spent 2013-2015 as a co-founder of Lunarch Studios, the start-up that designed the strategy game Prismata. During those years, I had also been a research intern with the Ad Exchange team in Google New York, and a trading intern at Jane Street Capital.

I completed my undergraduate degree in 2010 from the University of Waterloo, majoring in Pure Mathematics and Combinatorics/Optimization. During that time, I competed in many international poker tournaments. I teach the poker class at MIT, which has recently been archived onto MIT OpenCourseWare.
