Bio
I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania, where I was extremely fortunate to have been co-advised by Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth. My doctoral dissertation received Penn's Morris and Dorothy Rubinoff Award for best thesis. Before joining the UMN, I spent a year as a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research-New York City in the Machine Learning and Algorithmic Economics groups.

I work on algorithms and machine learning. My recent work focuses on (1) how to make machine learning better aligned with societal values, especially privacy and fairness, and (2) how social and economic interactions influence machine learning. I study these questions using methods and models from machine learning, statistics, optimization, differential privacy, game theory, and mechanism design.

My research has been generously supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), an Amazon Research Award, a Google Faculty Research Award, a J.P. Morgan Faculty Award, a Facebook Research Award, and a Mozilla Research Grant.
