Welcome to my Website!
I am a data scientist and an economist by training. I am interested in networks, computational social science, applied machine learning, and more generally how data and socio-technical systems can help understand and improve lives at a global scale.
I am currently part of the Big Data program at the World Bank. I am also a visiting scholar at NYU Computer Science and at the Northeastern Network Science Institute, a fellow at the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and a senior research affiliate at Data-Pop Alliance.
I completed my PhD at NYU under the supervision of Xavier Gabaix, Romain Ranciere, Lakshmi Subramanian, and Arun Sundararajan, and my postdoc at Northeastern and Harvard with Laszlo Barabasi, David Lazer and Chris Riedl.
I enjoy collaborating on research and data innovations, and I get most of my ideas when relaxing at the Russian baths and practicing meditation.
