About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia .

I received my PhD in 2013 from the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, under the supervision of Professor Robert Kleinberg . After that, I was a postdoc at Microsoft Research, New England Lab, and later at Caltech, Computing and Mathematical Sciences .

My research takes a computational perspecitve on problems arising from economic contexts, such as auctions and pricing. I am also interested in theoretical computer science in general.

I am the editor-in-chief of the SIGecom exchanges. Suggestions and letter submissions are highly welcomed.


In Spring 2016 I taught a reading seminar on Platforms and Internet Marketplaces at Caltech.
In Fall 2016 I taught CPSC 536F Algorithmic Game Theory at UBC.
In Fall 2017 I taught CPSC 536F Computational Perspectives on Economic Questions .
I am teaching CPSC 420 Advanced Algorithm Design and Analysis.
