Teaching (fall 2019): Colorado CSCI 5454 (graduate algorithms)
Advising (fall 2019): I am seeking PhD applicants, especially from diverse backgrounds, to work at the interface of theoretical CS, machine learning, and microeconomics. Example topics include data co-ops and marketplaces (with privacy considerations), information elicitation and aggregation (connecting to design of loss functions for learning), and mechanism design with informational considerations.
Neural Information Processing Systems 2018 (December):
- Slides for my 5min talk on Greedy for Linear Contextual Bandits.
- Slides for my 5min talk on Bounded-Loss Private Prediction Markets.
- Matthew Joseph gave a talk on Local Privacy for Evolving Data
EC 2018 (June):
- Haifeng Xu and I gave a Tutorial on Information, Persuasion, and Decisionmaking. (slides available at link).
- Slides from my talk on Strategic Classification from Revealed Preferences.
- Slides from my talk on differentially-private prediction markets at WADE (workshop).
Job: I am excited to announce that I will be joining the University of Colorado-Boulder as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in Fall 2019, following a postdoc at Microsoft Research New York City!
NETS 412: In Spring 2018, I taught NETS 412 "Algorithmic Game Theory" at UPenn.
ITCS 2018 (January): Slides for my talk on An Axiomatic Study of Scoring Rule Markets.
October 2017: I've (finally?) made public my side project bomail, an experimental terminal-based system for organizing and interacting with email. See that page for info, the source code, or how to install with python-pip.
Also, some fun new papers are up! (see Research page)
COLT 2017 (July): Slides for my talk on Multi-Observation Elicitation.
Thanks to all participants and attendees!
January 2017: Young EC Researchers (Tel Aviv) 2017: Slides for my talk on information elicitation and connections to mechanism design.
INFORMS 2016 (November): Slides for my talk on prediction markets and substitutes.FOCS 2016 (October):
- Slides are up for my talk on informational substitutes.
- Relevant blog posts: (1) generalized entropies and value of information, (2) divergences and value of information.
- Update: the full paper is now online here.
October 2016: My blog on topics in theoretical CS and game theory has launched!EC / GAMES 2016 (July):
- Slides are now up for the tutorial on elicitation and machine learning at EC '16.
- Slides are up for my talk on Informational Substitutes at GAMES '16.
- Slides are up for my talk on Descending Price Optimally Coordinates Search at EC '16.
Summer 2016: I now have a PhD!
