Welcome to my homepage. I'm currently a sophomore pursuing a major in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern
California, and I work under Dr. Milind Tambe as a member of the Teamcore Research Group. My research focuses on game theory
and on applying behavioral models to real-world scenarios -- specifically, to transportation security domains. My team's
recent work with the Los Angeles International Airport led to the successful deployment of our ARMOR software (Assistant for
Randomized Monitoring Over Routes) in optimizing traffic checkpoints at airport entrances as well as routes for canine units
patrolling the airport's terminals. My team is currently collaborating with other organizations to implement our software in
similar domains, including mass transportation security, and we're excited to see what new opportunities lie ahead.
