Adam I. Juda

Welcome to the Site of Adam Juda, currently a VP of Product Management at Google, previously a PhD student at Harvard.


Hi there! This space is intended to be a more lasting resource for those who may be interested in my prior research.

I am currently employed as a VP of Product Management at Google, based out of their New York office.


In June 2007, I received a Ph.D. in Information, Technology and Management, a program offered jointly by the Harvard Business School (HBS ITM Site) and Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS ITM Site).

My dissertation explores a variety of tensions at the intersection of computational mechanism design assumptions and ``the real world,'' proposing some novel solutions along the way. My co-advisors were Professors David C. Parkes (chair, SEAS) and Pai-Ling Yin (Sloan), with Professor Barbara J. Grosz a dissertation committee member.

The following is my one-page resume in pdf and ps formats (only current through my Harvard graduation).
