Caltech undergraduates

If you are currently a Caltech student and wish to meet with me, send me an email to schedule the meeting. If you stop by unannounced, I will likely be out of the office or in a meeting already. Also, in your email, please clearly state what you want to discuss and a range of available times that you can meet (the wider the better). This will reduce the amount of back-and-forth emailing to nail down a meeting time. I typically take meetings in my office (215 ANB) or my lab (209 ANB).

Prospective grad students

I am always looking for new PhD students. Most of my students come in through our new interdisciplinary PhD program in Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) (see my blog post about it for more info), but I also take students through the more traditional programs in CS, EE, and ACM. That said, please refrain from sending me personal emails asking for advice on your application. I tend to be overwhelmed with such emails and often cannot respond to them. Instead, when applying, simply mention your interest in working with me in the personal statement included in your application. This will ensure that your application reaches me.

Some commonly asked questions that I tend to get asked are the following

Prospective postdocs

I am actively seeking postdocs in a variety of areas, including but not limited to: (i) power systems & electricity markets, (ii) algorithmic game theory & privacy, (iii) networking & cloud computing, (iv) data markets. To apply, submit an application through the CMI program website. A nice thing about the CMI program is that students come in "unattached" and can work with any (and multiple) faculty during their time.
