I recently completed my PhD in computer science at the University of Toronto. I was supervised by Allan Borodin and Nisarg Shah. Prior to this, I completed a MSc in computer science under the supervision of Allan Borodin, and a BSc (specialist computer science and minor math), both at the Universtiy of Toronto. My research focused on application of techniques and models from artificial intelligence (AI) to problems in political science. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), under the supervision of Omer Lev. At BGU I am continuing my PhD research, and in particular focusing on the problem of political redistricting (also known as gerrymandering).
