Bo Waggoner

Microsoft Research, New York City

I am a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical Computer Science (what is Computer Science?), machine learning, AI, game theory, and "EconCS" (what is EconCS?). I got my PhD in CS from Harvard in 2016. I have a technical blog. I'm an avid runner.
In fall 2019, I will begin as an assistant professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
