I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Harvard University.

My work lies at the intersection of algorithms and machine learning. I have been working on expoential acceleration of submodular optimization , optimization under noise, adversarial machine learning, and the power and limitations of algorithms whose input is learned from data. More broadly my interests include machine learning, approximation algorithms, optimization, information networks, game theory, and mechanism design. For more information see my research statement.

For more information see my publications.

I am co-founder of Robust Intelligence, an AI company funded by Sequoia and Engineering Capital.

Before coming to Harvard I was a postdoc at Google Research, and slightly before that I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley where I was fortunate to be advised by Christos Papadimitriou.

My work is generously supported by an NSF CAREER Award, a Sloan Foundation Fellowship, Google Faculty Research Award, Facebook Faculty Award, NSF grant, DARPA, and a BSF grant. As a graduate student, I received the Microsoft Research fellowship and the Facebook fellowship.
