About Me


I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Coordinated Science Lab of the University of Illinois, working in the research group of Olgica Milenkovic.

I grew up in New York City and graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 2005, then moved upstate for my undergraduate education. I majored in Applied Mathematics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduating in May 2009.

I earned my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Illinois in August 2014. My advisor was Douglas B. West.

My primary research interest is combinatorics, especially extremal graph theory and combinatorial games. Other interests include computation, logic, and game theory (in the economic sense).
