Computer and Data Scientist, Software Engineer
I am part of the Analytics Team of San Mateo-based Greenplum. Now part of EMC, Greenplum is the foundation of the Data Computing Division within EMC's Information Infrastructure business. Before joining Greenplum, I was a postdoc in the Theory Group of the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. On this web site you currently find information about my scientific work and about publicly available software I have developed.
My academic research has focused on algorithmic game theory, located at the intersection of theoretical computer science, microeconomics, and (usually discrete) mathematics. Specific topics include, e.g., selfish resource allocation, particularly in large networks, and the design of incentive-compatible mechanisms, particularly for cost sharing.
