Homepage of Dr. Haris Aziz    


Welcome to my homepage!
I am a research scientist at NICTA, Sydney. 

I am also a conjoint lecturer at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, UNSW .

  • 09/2013: The paper "The Computational Complexity of Random Serial Dictatorship" coauthored with Markus Brill and Felix Brandt has been accepted at Economics Letters as well as WINE 2013.
  • 08/2013: Our paper has been accepted for Games and Economic Behavior: H. Aziz, F. Brandt and P. Harrenstein. Pareto Optimality in Coalition Formation.
  • 08/2013: Our video "Algorithmic Decision Theory @ NICTA" has won the best educational video in the IJCAI 2013 video competition.
  • 07/2013: Our paper on popular assignments has been accepted for SAGT 2013.
  • 07/2013: The COMSOC 2014 website is up. The workshop will be held at CMU.

My research interests broadly relate to theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, and microeconomic theory. In particular I work in two fields at the intersection of these areas: algorithmic game theory and computational social choice.

I was a postdoctoral research fellow at TUM (Technische Universität München) and LMU (Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich) in the group of Felix Brandt. Before my stint in Germany, I was a doctoral researcher at DIMAP (Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications), University of Warwick under the supervision of Mike Paterson and Dennis Leech. I completed an MSc in Mathematics & Foundations of Computer Science from the University of Oxford.
