Exploring the intersection of economics and computation
We seek to provide strategic and operational insights using mathematical and computational tools from the areas of game theory, optimization, operations management and econometrics.
Our researchers conduct theoretical and applied research that helps us improve the design of mechanisms used to auction ads, optimize network infrastructure usage and processing power, improve processes such as procurement, hiring, and quality control, and understand the underlying processes, behaviors or incentives that align with real-world observations. They also conduct research involving economic opportunity, including research to improve our products and for social good.
