We are generally interested in economics and computation, artificial intelligence, and operations research, specifically including algorithmic game theory, machine learning, social networks, and multiagent and distributed systems. Our current focus is on the price of anarchy, design and analysis of learning algorithms and dynamics in games, markets, and multiagent systems as well as data analysis including but not limited to algorithmic fairness and bias in AI.
