I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University. I recently graduated from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University (NYU) with a Ph.D. in Computer Science. I was fortunate to have Prof. Srikanth Jagabathula and Prof. Lakshminarayanan Subramanian as my advisors.
I am on the academic job market this year. I will be presenting at two sessions in the upcoming 2018 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ:
- A Model-based Embedding Technique for Segmenting Customers: Session MB21, North Bldg 129B, Nov 5 @ 11:30 AM
- A Conditional Gradient Approach for Nonparametric Estimation of Mixing Distributions: Session MD20, North Bldg 129A, Nov 5 @ 4:30 PM
