Ron Lavi (Technion) - Engineering, Technology and Planning

Ron Lavi is an associate professor at Technion’s faculty of industrial engineering and management. He has a PhD in computer science from the Hebrew University. He joined the Technion in 2006 after completing a two-year post-doctoral training at the California Institute of Technology. His research expertise is in Algorithmic Game Theory, a developing discipline on the border of computer science, economics, and game theory. His research studies algorithmic aspects in the design of networks for selfish users (e.g., the design of networks for rescue and evacuation), and the design of economic mechanisms for efficient resource allocation (e.g., when scarce resources are needed to be allocated in the best possible way in times of distress). Prof. Lavi was a consultant to Google, Microsoft research, and Yahoo! Labs.
