I am a postdoctoral fellow in Computer Science at Tulane University. My current research has been focused on defense and attacks in federated learning systems through the lens of reinforcement learning. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine, where I was very fortunate to work with Prof. Cristina Lopes. My dissertation relaxes some unrealistic assumptions in mechanism design for solving major discoordination problems arising in online platforms. Prior to Irvine, I obtained an M.Sc. in Computing and Information Science under the supervision of Prof. Jacob Crandall at Masdar Institute.
