I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate at Brown University performing work on autonomous trading agents with my advisor, Amy Greenwald.
My research interests lie at the intersection of computer science and economics, focusing predominantly on decision making under uncertainty, game theory, and mechanism design. I am interested in developing bidding strategies for complex auctions in which analytically solving for equilibria is intractable, and understanding the auction dynamics when different bidding strategies are played. I am also interested in inferring bidders’ underlying valuations from their observed behavior, and understanding how the auctioneer’s choices affect bidders’ resulting strategies, auctioneer profit, and social welfare.
Domains in which we currently pursue this research include the Dutch flower auctions, ad auctions, and supply chain management.
