I am currently the Head of Quantitative Research at IEX, the Investors Exchange. In April 2016 I completed a PhD in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan; my dissertation applied computational, simulation-based methods to study the impact of algorithmic trading in financial markets. At Michigan, I was a member of the Strategic Reasoning Group and I was advised by Michael Wellman.

Prior to Michigan, I received an M.S. in Computer Science from UCLA and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I've interned previously at Citigroup, GMO, Microsoft Research NYC, and the Office of Markets within the Division of Economic and Risk Analysis at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
