Ph.D. Candidate

Hi! I am a third-year PhD student in the MIT Operations Research Center. I have the pleasure of being advised by David Simchi-Levi. Broadly speaking, I am interested in data-driven revenue management, helping businesses make adaptive operational decisions based on potentially censored data. Specifically, I have recently been working on bundle pricing, a subject at the intersection of economics, computer science, and operations management.

I spent 2013-2015 as a co-founder of Lunarch Studios, the start-up that makes the strategy game Prismata. During these years, I have also been a research/software engineering intern with the AdX group at 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. During this time, I competed in many international poker tournaments. I teach the poker class at MIT, and recordings of past offerings can be found on my Youtube channel.
