I am a Research Scientist at Facebook and on leave as Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh since 2019. My research interests are in the methodological areas of reinforcement learning, approximate DP, and sequential decision making. I am also interested in a variety of operations research applications, such as energy markets, ride-sharing, and public health. I received my Ph.D. in May 2016 in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University, where I was advised by Warren B. Powell.
