Mathematical Modeling of Real World Phenomena

I am currently a PhD student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Maryland, working with Professor MohammadTaghi Hajiaghayi. I am mainly interested in approximate algorithms, auction / mechanism design, and game theoretic problems.

I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematics with a minor in Cognitive Sciences at Cornell University and between my undergraduate and graduate schooling, I worked as a post-graduate research associate at Yale University’s School of Medicine in the field of computational neuroscience with Dr. Hal Blumenfeld. My research focused on the applications of machine learning and data science approaches to EEG and fMRI in an effort to better understand and treat absence epilepsy.
