I am an Assistant Professor in Operations at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University.
My research is at the interface of analytics, transportation, and public policy. I try to design scalable algorithms and decision-making tools that improve transportation efficiency and positively affect society.
In particular, I work with school districts (San Francisco, Boston) to implement transparent and equitable transportation policies that save millions of dollars. This line of work changed Boston's public school transportation system in 2017, and also, changed most of San Francisco's schools schedules in 2021.
I am also interested in online platform operations and the gig economy. I recently [changed the online matching algorithm of Lyft](https://dl.acm.org/doi/abs/10.1145/3534678.3539141), savings tens of millions of dollars every year and benefiting both drivers and passengers.
