Haris Aziz

Scientia Fellow and Senior Lecturer UNSW

Team Leader ADT

Contributed Senior Research Scientist Data61 CSIRO

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 microeconomic theory. 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 make fairer and better decisions.

I occasionally blog about my academic research interests at http://haris-aziz.blogspot.com , The Conversation, or Medium.
