The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Microsoft Research

I am currently studying toward a PhD at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics, the Rachel and Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering, and the Federmann Center for the Study of Rationality, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My advisors are Profs. Sergiu Hart and Noam Nisan. My studies are supported by an Adams Fellowship of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. I am the recipient of the 2018 Michael B. Maschler Prize of the Israeli Chapter of the Game Theory Society.

I am also a Research Intern at Microsoft Research.

My main research interests lie in the interface between the theory of computation, economic theory, and game theory. In particular, I am interested in various aspects of complexity in mechanism design (where mechanisms are deļ¬ned broadly from auctions to matching markets), including the interface between mechanism design and machine learning.

I recently co-organized a tutorial at EC 2018 on the Menu Size of Precise and Approximate Revenue-Maximizing Auctions with Kira Goldner. I am serving on the program committees for EC 2019, AAAI 2019, WINE 2018 and SAGT 2018. I recently served as guest editor for an ACM XRDS issue dedicated to Algorithmic Game Theory and Gamification. (Read the introduction to this issue here.) Before that, I served as the poster session chair of EC 2017, and on the progam committees for EC 2017, EC 2016, and NetEcon 2016.
