Hi! I'm Amar Shah and I'm really excited to be teaching Game Theory at Splash this year with my friend Shyam Patel. I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada and I've had a really incredible time at Cornell learning about topics, ideas, and even fields of study that I hadn't heard of before. I hope to share some of those ideas and interests with you all at Splash this year and hope everyone has a really fun time!!
