I’m a 2nd-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science affiliated with the CS Theory Group and the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab. I do research in theoretical computer science (TCS), artificial intelligence (AI), mathematical economics, and their intersections. Most recently, graph theory, algorithmic game theory, statistical learning, and combinatorial optimization. I also think about how tools and techniques from TCS, AI, and economic design can yield insights about and help solve important societal problems.

I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria before moving to the US in 2017 to attend Oberlin College and Conservatory, from which, I graduated in May 2021 with a BA in Math and Computer Science (Highest Honors). In my spare time, I’m an avid enjoyer of fantasy novels, manga/manhwa, comics, and world history.
