I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I work, broadly, in machine learning. My current research interests are in the intersection of decision-making under uncertainty and game theory with applications in computer systems. For more details, see my publications.

Prior to UW-Madison, I was at UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. See here for a formal bio.

Current teaching:   CS639 - Introduction to Algorithmic Game Theory & Mechanism Design

Openings: I am recruiting students with a strong backgrounds in mathematics, statistics, and/or programming. If you are a PhD student at UW-Madison who is interested in working with me, please drop me an email (and follow up if I do not respond).
Unfortunately, I am not always able to individually respond to such inquiries from prospective students who are not at UW-Madison. However, you may apply to the MS/PhD program at the Department of Computer Sciences and drop me an email.
