I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT Sociotechnical Systems Research Center (SSRC). I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota in 2022.

My research interests are at the intersection of Mobile Computing, Data Mining, and Computational Social Science with applications in Smart Cities and Gig Delivery.
