I am an assistant professor at the National University of Singapore's School of Computing.I am interested in problems at the intersection of algorithms, machine learning, and game theory. I am deeply interested in theories of economic collaboration and resource allocation; I have spent a lot of time thinking about cooperative games, a mathematical model of agent collaboration, and using algorithmic means to find solutions for them. Some recent works along this line involve exploring collaboration under uncertainty: how can we decide which coalitions should form and how payoffs should we allocate, given that we only observe specific coalitions and their values?In another line of work, we study the classic economic problem of rent division: a group of roommates needs to decide how to allocate rooms and divide rent. How should they do this in a fair manner? In a 2016 EC paper we provide theoretical and emprical answers to this question, as well as confirm our findings with user studies on real data!
