Senior Researcher

About

I am a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research, currently located in Israel. I was a Researcher at Microsoft Research Silicon Valley (Mountain View, California) from 2007 to 2014. Till July 2007 I was a post-doc at the University of California at Berkeley, working with Prof. John Chuang. Prior to my post-doc, I was a graduate student at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel, where my advisor was Prof. Noam Nisan. My PhD thesis was on “Strategic Aspects of Computational Markets.” I have a M.Sc. in Computer Science and a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Mathematics, both from the Hebrew University.

I am serving on the editorial boards of ACM TEAC and GEB. I am also serving as program co-chair of ACM-EC 2017. I have served as General Chair of ACM-EC 2014 and the Program co-Chair of NetEcon 2016.

My research interests are in subjects on the border of Computer Science Theory, Game Theory, and Microeconomic Theory. In particular, I am interested in the theoretical foundations of Economics and Computation.

Computational Game Theory

Established: December 5, 2005

Overview We study several problems related to game theory. These problems are motivated by e-commerce applications and applications of game theory to computer system and network design. In mechanism design, we aim to develop mechanisms with useful properties which optimize an objective function, such as seller's revenue or global welfare of the system, in the worst- or average-case. Our work shows that techniques from learning, on-line algorithms, and coding theory can be applied to mechanism…
