CV (last updated: June 6th, 2018)

Vasilis Livanos

PhD Student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)

Research interests:
Algorithmic Game Theory, Equilibrium Computation and Dynamics,
Computational Social Choice, Mechanism Design, Approximation Algorithms.

I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at UIUC, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Ruta Mehta. My research interests lie in algorithmic game theory, equilibria analysis and computational social choice.

Before joining the theory group at UIUC, I received my Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens where I was a member of the Computation and Reasoning Lab and I was lucky enough to be advised by Dimitris Fotakis. You can find my diploma thesis here.

Finally, my other passion besides algorithms is photography and you can take a look at some of my photos here.
