CS 2.06, Department of Computer Science
University of Warwick Coventry, CV4 7AL

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Warwick.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University where I was advised by the inimitable Prof. David C. Parkes. After that, I was a postdoc at the Data Science Institute of Columbia University (Mentor: Daniel J. Hsu), and at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (Dept: Social and Information Systems, Mentor: Goran Radanovic).

Research Interests

I work on problems in AI and multi-agent systems, with an emphasis on theory and modeling, and with applications focused on societal problems. I am particularly interested in the following areas:
  • Social Choice Theory
  • Information Elicitation
  • Algorithmic Fairness
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Causality
