Ph.D. Candidate in Information Technology

I’m exploring computational social science as a PhD candidate in the Information Technology group at MIT Sloan, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Abdullah Almaatouq.

I worked in oil & gas, but felt that there were too many machines, and not enough people. I then worked in management consulting, and felt that there were a lot of people, but not enough technical work. Data science is my people-centric, technically-interesting middle ground.

My broad research interests lie in understanding collaborative and adversarial modes of human-AI interaction, and in exploring how virtual labs and adaptive experimentation can be applied to this and other questions in the social sciences.
