About me

I am an Assistant Professor in Operations at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University.

My research is focused on the interface between humans and algorithms, with the hope of positively affecting society. Most of my work lies in the academic fields of optimization, mathematical modeling, transportation, and public policy.

It is important to me that my research is useful in the real world. For example, I helped Boston redesign its school transportation systen, San Francisco change its school schedules, and Lyft change its matching algorithm. These changes save tens of millions of dollars every year and benefit millions of people. Their impact was recognized twice as a Franz Edelman Award laureate.
