I am a research scientist at MIT Sloan School of Management. My work lies at the intersection of computational/data science and cognitive psychology.

Prior to joining MIT, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Department of Psychology at Yale. I received my PhD in Engineering with a minor in Data Science. I also worked as a Systems and Software Integration Lead for five years prior to starting my PhD.

My interest includes spread of information and misinformation on social media, collective decision-making, and cooperation.
