I am interested in resource allocation algorithms like fair division, matching markets and auctions. I mostly look at different trade-offs in these mechanisms. Like for example having a centralized clearing-house for a matching market versus a decentralized search model. Or trade-off in objective criteria for optimization like efficiency (social welfare) and equality in fairly allocating a set of goods.
My educational background is in computer science and design of information systems. Although most of my time I have been poking a various economic problems that are related to mechanism design.
