About me

I am an LSE Fellow in Mathematics at London School of Economics. I am broadly interested in problems at the interface of Mathematics, Computer Science and Economics. I am particularly interested in Algorithmic Mechanism Design and Auction Theory.

Prior to joining LSE I was a postdoc with Tim Roughgarden at Stanford University and Éva Tardos at Cornell University. I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL. My PhD advisors were Monika Henzinger and Boi Faltings. During my PhD I did summer internships with David C. Parkes at Harvard University and Radu Jurca at Google Switzerland. I received my German Diplom in Computer Science “with distinction” from Universität Karlsruhe (TH). As an undergrad I enjoyed the philosophy seminars of Peter Sloterdijk at HfG Karlsruhe.

I recently served as a PC member of the 15th Conference on Economics and Computation (EC’14), the 13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (AAMAS’14), and the 10th Workshop on AdAuctions (AdAuctions’14)

In the upcoming Michaelmas Term I will be teaching MA300.1/301/402 Game Theory 1 together with Bernhard von Stengel.
