Kira Goldner is hosted by Tim Roughgarden and primarily conducts research with the Theory Group in the Department of Computer Science. She is also a National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her research is in algorithmic mechanism design: designing algorithms that guarantee that the designer’s objectives are achieved, even when the data they run on is produced by individuals acting in their own self-interest. Her current work includes studying social good questions in privacy and healthcare, revenue maximization problems, and understanding more complex behavioral and informational models. She also co-founded Mechanism Design for Social Good, or MD4SG, an interdisciplinary group working to improve access to opportunity for historically disadvantaged communities. Kira received her PhD in computer science and engineering from the University of Washington under the advisement of Anna Karlin, during which she was supported by a Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship and a Google Anita Borg Scholarship.
