I am currently in the job market, looking for a position in industry or academia (mainly postdocs). Please feel free to email me if you think I'd be a good fit for your group.
Here is a copy of my CV
I completed my Ph.D. in UMass Amherst, where I was a member of the Cryptoeconomics Lab
, working with Prof. Brian Levine
, and was co-affiliated with the Autonomous Learning Lab
, collaborating with Prof. Philip Thomas
My thesis focused on the analysis and application of concentration inequalities (also known as tail inequalities) to preserve the desirable properties of a given system. More specifically, I worked on a protocol that used tail inequalities to improve the network performance of blockchain systems; and analyzed the susceptibility of a class of reinforcement learning algorithms that leveraged tail inequalities to data poisoning attacks.
