My CV.


I am a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am advised by Nina Balcan and Tuomas Sandholm. I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science, computational learning theory, mechanism design, and artificial intelligence. I am supported by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) and the MSR Women's Fellowship. I received my undergraduate degree from Columbia University.
