About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, supervised by Ulle Endriss in the Computational Social Choice group. I co-organise the LUNCH seminar series.

I received my MSc in Logic from the University of Amsterdam in 2016. Before coming to Amsterdam, I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2014 with a BA in Cognitive Science.

When I'm not studying formal models of collective decision making, I enjoy knitting and solving crossword puzzles.

Teaching

In the fall of 2018 I co-organised a student seminar on Algorithmic Game Theory. In June 2018, I co-organised a Master of Logic (MoL) research project on Judgment Aggregation. I was the teaching assistant for the MoL/AI courses on Game Theory and Computational Social Choice between 2017-2019.
