I’m a second year PhD student in Computer Science, advised by Prof. David Parkes in the EconCS research group. My primary research interests are in applied aspects of economics and computation specifically in regard to developing markets. My current project is studying feedback loops in machine learning algorithms for credit systems.
I completed my undergraduate studies at MIT, where I majored in Aerospace Engineering, and then obtained a Masters degree in Computer Science from Stanford University.
Before joining Harvard, I worked for IBM Research in Nairobi, Kenya. At IBM Research I initiated and led the design and development of CLM (Credit Limit Management) system, a mobile lending credit scoring system, now serving nearly four million customers. I also worked on projects in traffic management, digital advertising and open government data platforms.
