I am a Career Development Fellow in Computer Science at Balliol College at the University of Oxford, and a Research Fellow at Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK).

Prior to this, I completed a D.Phil. in Theoretical Computer Science under the supervision of Paul Goldberg, and a B.A. in Mathematics at Harvard University with a minor in Neuroscience in 2012. 

My interests lie in the intersection of Algorithmic Game Theory, Decentralised Consensus Protocols and Computational Learning Theory.

I am also a co-organiser of the Mechanism Design For Social Good (MD4SG) research initiative alongside Rediet Abebe, Irene Lo, Ana-Andrea Stoica and Wanyi Li.
