I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science department at Cornell University, where I am advised by Eva Tardos. I was a long-term visitor at the Simons Institute for theory of computing, in Fall 2015 for a semester on Economics and Computation.
I was an intern at Google during summer 2017. I have been an Ivy-Plus Exchange Scholar at Princeton
University hosted by Matt Weinberg, since Fall 2017. Before joining Cornell, I received
my BS degree in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of
My research focuses on Algorithm Design, Algorithmic Game Theory and Mechanism Design, and Matching Markets.
