I'm an Assistant Professor at the Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University . I was formerly a Computational Social Scientist in the Social and Behavioral Systems group, Decision and Infrastructure Sciences Division at Argonne National Laboratory and held a joint appointment at the Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering at The University of Chicago.

I received my Ph.D. in Decision Sciences from INSEAD in August 2016, and held postdoctoral appointments at Argonne National Laboratory and The University of Chicago.

In my research, I use different computational and analytical methods to study information diffusion and decision behavior in complex systems, applied to big questions in public health and information domains.

The central methodological theme in my work is the use of both empirical and first-principle based computational modeling techniques (such as agent-based models) to augment traditional theoretical, empirical and experimental analyses.

I model the diffusion of information, opinions, and rumors, across complex networks, measuring population-level outcomes as a function of dynamic micro-level interactions and adaptive behavior.
