Nima Haghpanah, B.S.
Nima Haghpanah received his bachelor’s degree from Sharif University of Technology in Iran and is currently a Ph.D. student at Northwestern University under the supervision of Jason Hartline. His work is in the field of mechanism design that is at the intersection of computer science and economics. A mechanism is an algorithm that is most effective when its inputs are from the equilibrium behavior of strategic agents. A fundamental challenge in mechanism design is the case where the agents’ preferences are multi-dimensional. For these problems, he has given several methods for reducing and approximately reducing multi-agent mechanism design problems to simpler single-agent mechanisms design problems. He has published papers in the proceedings of conferences such as EC and WINE and in journals such as TEAC and TCS.
