Research Interests

My research interests are manifold and lie in the intersection of algorithms, game theory and computational complexity.
I'm especially interested in:

  • Algorithmic Game Theory, in particular the impact of selfish behavior in optimization problems
  • Modeling and analyzing network creation by selfish agents
  • Network Design and algorithmic problems on graphs in general
