I have two papers accepted to IJCAI. The first is on coalition formation and negotiation in human/agent environments;
the other is on forming 'good' coalitions in uncertain environments - this is also Jakub's first published research paper, which makes it even more exciting!
Jakub will work on problems at the intersection of game theory, fair division, algorithms and machine learning. See more here.

Looking for motivated PhD students
If you are interested in my research and considering graduate studies, please contact me.
EC 2016 Best Paper Award
Our paper "Which is the Fairest (Rent Division) of them All?",
coauthored by myself, Moshik Mash, Kobi Gal and Ariel D. Procaccia, won the ACM EC (Economics and Computation)
best paper award. The paper had a nice mix of theoretical and empirical results,
as well as carefully designed user studies.

The IFAAMAS Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award
Annually awarded to the best PhD thesis in the multi-agent systems community.
The AAMAS 2011 Pragnesh Jay Modi Best Student Paper Award
I got this award for my first ever research paper (coauthored by my then advisor and current amazing researcher, Edith Elkind), this still is one of the most fun projects I got to work on.
2010 - 2014
The Singapore International Graduate Award
My PhD was generously funded by the Singapore International Graduate Award (SINGA), awarded by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). This is a full PhD scholarship awarded to outstanding international scholars wishing to pursue their graduate studies in Singapore.
I was a member of the "Amirim" honors program, accepting a small number of outstanding students from all academic disciplines. The program focused mostly on the arts and social sciences, so it wasn't very "science-y", but it did teach me how to write clearly and academically. Oh, and we got to read The Tempest!
I am interested in problems at the intersection of algorithms, machine learning, and game theory.
