About Me

I am Ph.D. student advised by Michael Kearns in the Computer and Information Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests include various topics in theoretical computer science, especially those related to computational learning theory and algorithmic game theory.

Before coming to Penn, I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from Haverford College in May 2011.
