Sally Dalton Robinson Professor of Computer Science (2011 - 2016)
Professor Conitzer is a leader in the intersection of computer science and economics, specializing in computational aspects of game theory, voting, and mechanism design. His work has contributed to the solution of real-world problems, such as the automated randomized scheduling of security assets and the running of combinatorial auctions with many items. Professor Conitzer has created new courses in the context of a new interdisciplinary minor in computational economics. He does an excellent job of integrating research into the classroom and has even used Sudoku as a tool in teaching linear and integer programming.
