About me

I'm the Drew Houston (2005) Career Development Professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management (in the Information Technology group) and department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS), working with Cynthia Dwork. I completed my PhD at the Computer Science department at Cornell University, where I was incredibly fortunate to be advised by Jon Kleinberg. I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from UC Berkeley. You can find my CV here.

My primary interests lie in the application of computational techniques to domains of social concern, including online platforms, algorithmic fairness, and behavioral economics, with a particular focus on the use of algorithmic tools in the hiring pipeline. I'm a member of Cornell's Artificial Intelligence, Policy, and Practice initiative. I'm also on the International Advisory Board of Sai University in Chennai. I coach the Harvard Men's Soccer Club. In the past, I played club soccer for for Cornell Mundial FC and UC Berkeley Men's Club Soccer.
