Short Bio

A very brief version of my curriculum vitae:

Research Interests

I did my PhD at the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics at University of Warsaw, followed by two postdocs at University of Oxford (2016--2017) and TU Berlin (2017--2018) (where I received a Humboldt Research Fellowships for Postdoctoral Researchers).

My research concerns multi-agent systems and computational social choice. I am especially interested in multiwinner elections (sometimes called committee elections). See a new survey on committee elections with approval ballots that I coauthored with Martin Lackner. If you are more interested in committee elections with ordinal ballots, see this chapter. This is also a short video in which I briefly introduce the topic of committee elections.

I am interested in linking various ideas from game theory, resource allocation, approximation algorithms and computational social choice.

My previous reserach also concerned distributed systems and particularly scheduling and load balancing algorithms for distributed systems, resource allocation and applying game theoretical solutions to distributed systems.
