Research interests

Algorithmic game theory; Theoretical computer science
I study the design and analysis of algorithms with economic and societal applications.
Some particular interests include robustness and simplicity, market equilibrium and pricing, auctions and beyond, fairness, and interactions between theory and practice.

I'm happy to be part of the Theoretical Computer Science Group and the Game Theory Group at the Technion.
