  • Research

    My research interests lie in the intersection of optimization, social computing and machine learning. The broad goal of my research is to develop algorithmic and data-driven solutions to facilitate decision making under uncertainty for social impact, with a focus on applications in social welfare and equity. My research has been mainly published in machine learning and information management venues, including AAAI, AAMAS, IJCAI, and CIKM.
