Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
I am a Ph.D. student at the Henry and Marilyn Taub Faculty of Computer Science, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, where I am advised by Inbal Talgam-Cohen. I earned my BS.c. in computer science from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.
My primary research interests lie in the overgrowing intersection of algorithms, game theory, and mechanism design. In particular, I am interested in applying techniques from theoretical computer science to analyze strategic interaction and to design algorithms with economic applications.
Currently, I study the power of contracts as a tool for the allocation of effort. My focus is on economic environments with a mixture of incomplete information on types and actions.
I gave a talk about ``Typed Contract Design" in an EC’22 workshop on Algorithmic Contract Design: Present and Future. See 30 minute talk and slides.
I presented our work on ``Contracts with Private Cost per Unit-of-Effort" at EC'21. See 18 minute talk.
I presented our work on ``Incomplete Information VCG Contracts for Common Agency" at EC'21. See 18 minute talk.
I gave a talk in the Sixth Marketplace Innovation Workshop (MIW) about ``VCG Contracts for Common Agency". See 15 minute talk.
I gave a talk in the Technion Game Theory Seminar about our work on VCG contracts for Common Agency. See talk announcement.
