Research Associate

Leaving date: 30th April 2023


My research focuses on pricing and auctions, specifically providing complexity bounds and designing effective algorithms for determining viability of mechanisms in the dual settings of social welfare and profit maximisation. This stimulating and active area of research has an abundance of open problems and deep implications for the world outside of academia. My approach combines rigorous mathematical proof, algorithm design that draws heavily on convex optimisation, and careful implementation at every step to see performance in practice.
