I am a third year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I am interested in problems that lie in the intersection of Machine Learning and Game Theory. I am fortunate to be co-advised by Avrim Blum and Ariel Procaccia.
I co-organize the Learning Theory reading group.
