I am a second-year PhD student in artificial intelligence at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I graduated with a BSE in data science engineering from the University of Michigan, College of Engineering, with minors in mathematics and complex systems. My research interests include computational social choice, multiagent systems, and reinforcement learning.
