I am currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University . I received my PhD in Operations Research and Financial Engineering in 2013 at Princeton University where my advisor was Dr. William A. Massey .

My primary research interests involve the stochastic analysis and optimal control of queueing networks with time varying rates. Often valuable information about the queueing system can be lost or delayed and I am interested in how this loss or delay of information impacts the dynamics of queueing networks. I am also broadly interested in the applications of queueing networks in the study of service systems, collaborative economies, smartphone networks, healthcare, and transportation systems.
