About Me

I’m an Assistant Professor at the Computer Science department at UC Santa Cruz. I’m taking a half-year on-leave until January, 2019. Currently I’m holding a postdoctoral fellow position at Harvard University, hosted by Professor Yiling Chen. Starting from late 2014, my research is broadly focused on the interactions between society and algorithmic decision-making. For instance, I am interested in a lot of questions that sit at the intersections between crowdsourcing, data, machine learning and our society. Examples of topics that I am actively researching on can be found here.


[2018.06]: GaMeDATA is scheduled to be on July 14. Please consider attending! We have Dave Pennock from MSR NYC and Drazen Prelec from MIT as confirmed invited speakers. Our program will also include a panel discussion. Full schedule coming soon!

[2018.02]: We (together with Yiling Chen, Boi Faltings, David Parkes and Goran Radanovic) are organizing the first workshop on Game-Theoretic Mechanisms for Data and Information (GaMeDATA18) at the Federated AI Meeting of AAMAS, ICML, and IJCAI (FAIM) at Stockholm this incoming summer.


I’m looking for Ph.D. students and Postdocs to join me at UCSC CS this incoming January (of 2019). If you happen to be interested in coming to Santa Cruz to work with me, feel free to drop me a message.
