About me

I am a third year MS/PhD student in the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, advised by Mohammad Hajiesmaili. My work focuses on emission analysis, decarbonizing, and optimizing transportation systems. I am especially interested in designing learning-augmented online algorithms that can efficiently lower the overall carbon emissions of ride-sharing platforms.
