Algorithms and theoretical computer science, especially issues at the intersection of Economics and Computation. Algorithms for large decentralized networks, including networks with strategic agents. Particular interests include: social choice and voting algorithms, network formation, networked markets and matching markets,
algorithmic game theory, approximation algorithms, graph algorithms, and information propagation in both social and computer networks. If you are a student who wants to work with me, please also read this.
