Final update - August 30th, 2011: I have completed my PhD after defending and writing this thesis. I will be spending the 2011-2012 academic year as a postdoc at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington. Starting Fall 2012, I will be an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Southern California.
I will no longer be updating this webpage. Depending on when you are viewing this, you may want to look for my new page either at MSR or at USC. I leave below a snapshot of my homepage as it once stood when I was a grad student, for nostalgia's sake.

I am a PhD student in the computer science theory group at Stanford University, advised by Professor Tim Roughgarden. My interests include algorithms, game theory, and combinatorial optimization. Recently I have focused on problems in algorithmic mechanism design.

I graduated from Cornell University in 2004 with a B.S. in computer science and a minor in applied mathematics. After Cornell, I joined the MITRE Corporation as an Information Security Engineer from 2004 to 2006, where I worked on cryptographic protocol analysis. I enrolled at Stanford in the Fall of 2006, and expect to graduate in June 2011.
