I am a Scientia Fellow and Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Associate Professor in the North American system) at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, UNSW and the team leader of the Algorithmic Decision Theory group.
My research interests broadly relate to artificial intelligence, theoretical computer science and mathematical economics. In particular, I work in two fields at the intersection of these areas: algorithmic game theory and computational social choice. In a layperson's terms, my research agenda can be described as designing algorithms that facilitate cooperation and make fairer and better decisions.
I occasionally blog about my academic research interests at http://haris-aziz.blogspot.com , The Conversation or Medium. I am happy to explore relevant academic or research openings and opportunities locally or globally.
- I will be giving a Senior Member's survey talk at AAAI 2020.
- I gave a survey talk on "Developments in Multi-agent Fair Allocation" at the Dagstuhl Seminar on Application-Oriented Computational Social Choice. The slides are here.
