My name is Shivika Narang (pronounced Shi-vi-kaa Naa-rung) and I am an incoming postdoc at MSRI/SLMath for the Algorithms, Fairness and Equity program. I have recently concluded my time as a PhD student, and recipient of the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Research Scholarship at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, where I was a member of the Game Theory Lab. I was advised by Prof Y Narahari.  I am broadly interested in Algorithmic Game Theory and Approximation Algorithms.  My current work is focused on fairness in matchings and allocations. 

I completed my M Tech (Research) from CSA, IISc, under Prof Y Narahari, in July 2018, with a thesis titled "Design of Trusted Market Platforms using Permissioned Blockchains and Game Theory".
