I am a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science (what is Computer Science?). I'm interested in theoretical CS, machine learning, AI, game theory, and "EconCS" (what is EconCS?). I got my PhD in CS from Harvard in 2016 with advisor Yiling Chen. I graduated from Duke University in 2011 and am an avid runner.
