About me

I am a founding member of Microsoft Research New England in Cambridge, MA. I have previously been an assistant professor of computer science at Georgia Tech and TTI-Chicago. I was extremely fortunate to receive a PhD at CMU from the ingenious Avrim Blum (where I was also supervised by Randy Pausch for a time), followed by an NSF postdoc at MIT under the wise guidance of Santosh Vempala.
