[CV]   Coming soon: [Research Statement]   [Teaching Statement]   [Diversity Statement]  

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.
