Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford
Assistant Professor at UCLA Anderson
(starting July 2022)
Ph.D. Yale University 2021
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, hosted by Daniela Saban, where I study how powerful tools from the sharing economy can be tailored toward applications in the public and civic sectors. In 2022, I will be joining the amazing DOTM group in the Anderson School of Management at UCLA as an assistant professor. I received my Ph.D. in 2021 from the Yale School of Management, where I was fortunate to be advised by Vahideh Manshadi.
Drawing on techniques from operations, computer science, economics, and statistics, my research aims to amplify the impact of organizations that promote social good. I build data-driven models of large stochastic systems to shed light on how these organizations can harness the power of crowdsourcing and platform-based markets.
My dissertation research was motivated in part by a collaboration with Food Rescue U.S., a leading online platform that simultaneously addresses the societal problems of food waste and hunger. Through this work, I address fundamental design questions related to notification systems and platform growth.
In addition to my work on operations outside the private sector, I spent the summer of 2019 working at Lyft as a research science intern with their excellent driver positioning team. Before coming to Yale, I graduated from Williams College in 2013 with a degree in Math and Economics, and I taught in the Math Department at Kingswood Oxford School for three years.
