Research interests

My main interests lie in modelling and analysing the behaviour of agents in complex systems and designing such systems for their interaction. My research is tangential to the following topics:

- Mechanism design: the use of game theory to design multi-agent systems that elicit desired behaviour, e.g., truthfulness or social optimality.

- Agent-based models: modelling complex systems from the perspective of individual agents that are governed by rules; analysing the emergent behaviour.

- Computational Social Choice: looking at the problem of social choice (i.e., aggregation of agents' preferences) from the algorithmic perspective.
