About me

I am a Senior Research Scientist at Google Switzerland and a Visiting Professor in the Department of Mathematics at London School of Economics. I work on problems at the intersection of Algorithms, Game Theory, Contract Theory, and Mechanism Design.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL Lausanne. My PhD advisor was Monika Henzinger. During my PhD I visited David Parkes at Harvard University, and I did a summer internship at Google. Afterwards, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher with Tim Roughgarden at Stanford University and Éva Tardos at Cornell University, an LSE Fellow in Mathematics at London School of Economics, and a Senior Researcher at ETH Zürich. Before joining Google, I was an Assistant/Associate Professor of Mathematics at London School of Economics.

I was awarded a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship and a Swiss National Science Foundation Postdoc Grant. I am an alumnus of both the German and the Swiss National Academic Foundation. I have been awarded a Best Full Paper Award at EC’19 and a Best Paper Award at EC’12. I am one of the winners of the 2017/18 LSE Excellence in Education Awards.
