About Me

I have successfully defended my dissertation. I will join the Market Algorithms Group at Google Research NYC as a Research Scientist in Summer 2020.

I am currently a final-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Duke University, advised by Vincent Conitzer. I also worked with Debmalya Panigrahi and Rong Ge, and was a member of the Moral AI Group.

My research is broadly situated at the interface between economics and computer science, and mainly seeks to understand how to design mechanisms in dynamic environments.

I am supported by a Google PhD Fellowship in Algorithms, Optimizations and Markets.

I interned in the Market Algorithms Group at Google Research NYC in Summer 2018, working with Sébastien Lahaie and Vahab Mirrokni on preferred deals and dynamic mechanism design, and in Summer 2019, working with Balasubramanian Sivan on dashboard mechanisms.

Before joining Duke University, I received a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the Yao Class, Tsinghua University, and was a member of Computational Economics Group, led by Pingzhong Tang.
