I am currently a research scientist at Facebook active in the areas of machine learning, optimization, algorithmic fairness, integrity and ad marketplaces. In the past I have been a research scientist at Yahoo, where I worked on optimization and machine learning with applications to ranking, personalization and computational advertising. I have held research positions at Philips Research, the University of Wisconsin and a visiting position at the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics. I received my PhD from MIT EE/CS (Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems) under the supervision of Pablo Parrilo. Earlier, I obtained my master’s degree at Stanford and a bachelor’s degree from the wonderful Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. I am a recipient of the INFORMS Optimization Society Young Researcher Prize (2016).
