Welcome! I'm an Assistant Professor at Bowdoin College, with a joint appointment between Computer Science and Digital and Computational Studies. I got my PhD in computer science from Stony Brook University in 2013. I was fortunate to have been advised by the one and only Professor Luis E. Ortiz. Right after my PhD, I joined Bowdoin as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science, and I have been thoroughly enjoying my time here ever since! I got my tenure-track appointment in 2015.
My research interests lie in the interdisciplinary areas that combine artificial intelligence with sociology (e.g, influence in social networks), economics (e.g., microfinance markets), and arts (e.g., authentication of Jackson Pollock's paintings). I'm also interested in computational geometry and graph drawing.
Teaching is the joy of my life. The amazing Bowdoin students excite me as a teacher and energize me for my ultimate goal of routinely excellence in teaching.
In my leisure time, I love playing tennis and soccer.
