I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and a Research Fellow at Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK). Prior to this, I was a Career Development Fellow in Computer Science at Balliol College at the University of Oxford.

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, Wanyi Li, Lily Xu, and George Obaido.
