Anson Kahng

I am a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Ariel Procaccia. I work on theoretical problems at the intersection of computer science and economics, particularly in computational social choice. Recently, I have worked on voting aggregation for noisy votes, impartial voting mechanisms, and liquid democracy. More broadly, I am interested in theoretical computer science and applications thereof.

I completed my undergraduate degree in computer science at Harvard College, where I worked with David Parkes on dynamic kidney exchange. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, doing yoga, reading (lately, science fiction and Russian literature), and playing table tennis and ultimate frisbee.
