My name is Christian Kroer. I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am part of the Electronic Marketplaces Lab, advised by Professor Tuomas Sandholm.

I hold a Master’s degree in Software Development and Technology from the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU). I was advised by Professors Rune M. Jensen and Joseph R. Kiniry. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in Human Centered Informatics from Aalborg University.

I spent the summer of 2015 interning at Microsoft Research New York City, where I worked with Sébastien Lahaie and Miro Dudík.

I am a winner of the 2016 Facebook Fellowship, which will generously be supporting me from 2016 and onwards.

My research lies at the intersection of computer science and economics. It is concerned with problems such as how to compute Nash equilibria in large-scale games and maximizing revenue in auctions.
