Here's a tribute written in the memory of my friend who got me started in research.

I am currently a postdoc at MIT Sloan Marketing working at the intersection of Computation, Psychology, and Climate Change. I received my PhD in Computer Science at Princeton University, advised by Tom Griffiths, with my dissertation receiving the 2024 SfNC dissertation award.

Previously, I graduated from Nanyang Technology University in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and in 2018 from UC Berkeley with a master's degree in Education.
