I am currently an Assistant Professor at the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University. I did my PhD in computer science at University of Southern California with Prof. Milind Tambe and a post-doctoral position at Carnegie Mellon University with Prof. Stephen Smith .

Research in my group focusses on developing intelligent agent systems that perform dynamic matching of supply and demand, so as to improve quality of life metrics. Most of these systems are motivated by urban environments and have concrete applications in Transportation, Emergency Response, Entertainment, Energy, and Security. Our contributions are at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Operations Research, Machine Learning and Behavioral Economics.

Awarded the Ministry of Education Tier 2 Grant for our proposal on "Moving Beyond Data Insights: Optimizing Dynamics in Safety and Security Networks"
