I am currently an Associate Professor at the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University.

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.
