I am a Life Sciences strategist, an ex-McKinsey Engagement Manager, and a former public health modeler, and an electrical engineering PhD.

In my postdoctoral work, I used optimal control and game theory to study dynamic interventions in networks and developing mathematical decisionmaking tools for epidemic control and policy-making. In my PhD thesis, I showed how more granular data can drastically change optimal epidemic policies & responses.
