Professor Constantinos Daskalakis
Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Constantinos Daskalakis is a Professor of Computer Science at MIT, working on Computation Theory and its interface with Game Theory, Economics, Probability Theory, Machine Learning and Statistics. He has resolved long-standing open problems about the computational complexity of Nash equilibrium, and the mathematical structure and computational complexity of multi-item auctions. His current work focuses on high-dimensional statistics and learning from biased, dependent, and strategic data. He has been honored with the ACM Doctoral Dissertation award, the Kalai Prize from the Game Theory Society, the SIAM outstanding paper prize, the ACM Grace Murray Hopper Award, the Simons investigator award, the Bodossaki Foundation Distinguished Young Scientists Award, and the Nevanlinna prize from the International Mathematical Union.
Students working with him: Yuval Dagan, Andrew Ilyas, Vardis Kandiros, Enrico Micali, Patroklos Stefanou
