Hello! I am a final-year Ph.D. student at Princeton University in the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics (entered fall 2011). I primarily work on mathematical aspects of computer and information networks, and am particularly interested in applying theoretical insights to practical system deployments. Here is a video of me talking about some of my research.


My Ph.D. work was partially supported by the NDSEG Fellowship and Princeton's Centennial and Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowships. Before my graduate studies, I received an A.B. in mathematics, also at Princeton.


From July 2013 to June 2014, I took a one-year leave of absence from Princeton as the Director of Advanced Research at DataMi, a startup company I co-founded in 2012. DataMi's products, which grew out of my smart data pricing (SDP) research at Princeton, have been deployed by Internet service providers around the world, including AT&T in the U.S., Airtel in India, and Orange in Europe. My other graduate research includes work on the fairness of resource allocations and realizations of a fog networking architecture. I have also published on classical molecular control, which was the subject of my undergraduate thesis at Princeton.
