Welcome! I'm an Associate Professor at Bowdoin College, with a joint appointment between Digital and Computational Studies and Computer Science. I joined Bowdoin as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2013, right after my PhD in computer science from Stony Brook University. I was hired on tenure track in 2015 and got tenure in 2021. All these years, I've been thoroughly enjoying my time here. In fact, I dearly missed this campus when I was on sabbatical in 2018-19, but I came back with a Best Paper Award and a prestigious NSF grant.

My research interests lie in the interdisciplinary areas that combine artificial intelligence with sociology (e.g, influence in social networks), economics (e.g., microfinance markets), and art (e.g., authentication of Jackson Pollock's paintings). I've also delved into computational geometry a while back.

Teaching is the joy of my life, and the amazing Bowdoin students are like my batteries! They keep me energized for my teaching and research. In my leisure time, I love playing and watching soccer.
