(I am on the 2022-2023 Academic Job Market)

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research NYC. I obtained my PhD at UC Berkeley where I was advised by Peter Bartlett and Michael Jordan. My research lies in the areas of Reinforcement Learning, Online Learning, Bandits and Algorithmic Fairness. I am particularly interested in furthering our statistical understanding of learning phenomena in adaptive environments and use these theoretical insights and techniques to design efficient and safe algorithms for scientific, engineering, and large-scale societal applications.
