Ariel Procaccia

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University.

I usually work on problems at the interface of computer science and economics. Some of my current research interests include:
  • Computational social choice, and its applications to crowdsourcing and human computation.
  • Computational game theory, and its applications to physical security and cybersecurity.
  • Computational mechanism design, and its applications to kidney exchange.
  • Computational fair division, and its applications to, well, making the world a bit fairer.
I am a member of the AI group, the theory group, and the ACO program. I write papers, teach courses, serve on various editorial boards and program committees, and, best of all, advise wonderful students and postdocs.
