About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard CRCS. In summer 2019, I will join the Computer Science Department at UVA as the Alan Batson assistant professor. I am broadly interested in algorithms, game theory and machine learning. My research focus on developing theoretically grounded techniques that also have real-world impact.

My CV can be found here.

I am looking for self-motivated and mathematically mature PhD students starting from Fall 2019 at UVA!

About My Research

I work on problems at the intersection of computer science and economics, with a particular focus on understanding how incentives and information affect learning and decision making. The following are some projects that I am actively researching on; please see my publications here for more details.

  • Strategic use of information in game-theoretic settings (a.k.a., persuasion or signaling)
  • Resource allocation in adversarial environments, with applications to security, privacy protection and fake news control
  • Learning from strategic or adversarial agents
  • The pricing and sell of information/data
