I will join the Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2017, and I am looking for Ph.D. students!

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) at Harvard University, working with Prof. David Parkes and Prof. Barbara Grosz.


Please consider submitting your work to the 8th Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security (GameSec 2017) which will be held at Vienna, Austria during Oct 23rd – Oct 25th, 2017! I am the chair of the Special Track on “Data-Centric Models and Approaches”. Paper submission deadline: Thursday, June 29, 2017 (see call for papers for more details).

For students at CMU: If you are interested in working with me, please email me directly.

For prospective students who are planning to apply for Ph.D. programs: If you are interested in working with me, please apply for the Societal Computing Ph.D. Program in CMU/SCS! Note: You may apply to several Ph.D. programs at CMU/SCS at once. Mention and explain your interest in my work to ensure that I see your application.
