I am an Assistant Professor of Information Systems in the Questrom School of Business at Boston University.

I am interested in computational social choice, fair division and discrete optimization, especially problems with real-world applications like participatory budgeting and gerrymandering.

Before coming to Boston, I completed my PhD in Operations Research in the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Ariel D. Procaccia and John Hooker. I also had the opportunity to work with Andrea Qualizza in the supply chain optimization technologies (SCOT) team at Amazon in the summer of 2017. Before moving to the US I completed an MSc degree under Jan van Vuuren and Alewyn Burger at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

Prospective students: If you are interested in pursuing a PhD in Information Systems and are interested in working with me (or leading scholars in the area of reputation systems, platform economics, social network analysis, mechanism design, FinTech, etc.), please apply by following the guidelines here. More about the PhD program in the Questrom School of Business can be found in the doctoral program site.
