I am a postdoc at Yale Institute for Network Science (YINS), and I am honored to work with Leandros Tassiulas.

I use optimal control and game theory to study dynamic influence in networks.

In my PhD thesis (supervised by Saswati Sarkar and Santosh Venkatesh), I showed how more granular data can drastically change optimal epidemic policies & responses.
