I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research in New England. In the Fall of 2016 I will join the MEDS department at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management as an assistant professor. I recieved my PhD from Stanford University in 2015, where I was advised by Benjamin Van Roy. In 2011 I recieved my BS in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Michigan.
My research lies at the intersection of statistical machine learning and sequential decision-making, and contributes to the fields of online optimization, reinforcement learning, and sequential design of experiments. I am interested in the design and analysis of algorithms that learn over time to make increasingly effective decisions through interacting with a poorly understood environment.
