I am a second-year PhD student in the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I am advised by Mohammad Hajiesmaili and Prashant Shenoy.
I work at the intersection of theory and systems, with an emphasis on problems that hold implications for energy, equity, and climate change. From a theoretical perspective, I am interested in designing algorithms for online optimization, particularly of the learning-augmented or provably fair types. On the application side, I am especially interested in efforts which promote the decarbonization of energy systems and computing infrastructure. My work is supported by a U.S. Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (CSGF).
Through my research, I strive to advance ideals of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
