I am a Research Scientist in the Robust Incentives Group of the Ethereum Foundation. My research here has to do with game theory and mechanism design for blockchain protocol security and decentralised applications. I also enjoy participating in workshops and educational initiatives to explain fundamental concepts. I produced open-source work at hackathons and in writing at, the latter of which I cofounded.

Previously, I completed my PhD at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), focusing on algorithmic game theory and systems. My thesis deals with running large experiments to evaluate ideas from congestion games as well as study properties of learning dynamics – equilibration and performance guarantees. This led us to proposing a model for inequality in routing games linking congestion, pricing, and wealth distribution.

You can find my publications on this website, posts on my current obsessions, as well as reviews where I give a personal take on things I read, see or do.
