About

I am a PhD candidate in Operations Management at the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Soo-Haeng Cho, and work with Alan Scheller-Wolf.

My research interest revolves around smart city operations. More specifically, I study the potential effects of innovative technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, on highway traffic congestion, parking and the sharing economy.
