I am a postdoc in computer science at the University of Pennsylvania, and am fortunate to be hosted by Michael Kearns, Aaron Roth, and Rakesh Vohra. I recently completed my PhD working with Avrim Blum at Carnegie Mellon University. My interests, generally speaking, lie within the area of theoretical computer science; more specifically, I spend a lot of my time thinking about mechanism design, learning, algorithmic game theory, privacy, and approximation algorithms.

Funding

I have been fortunate to be supported by the Simons Award for Graduate Students in Theoretical Computer Science (2014-2016), an NSF GFRP fellowship, as well as the Microsoft Research Graduate Women's Scholarship.
