Zheyuan Ryan Shi

I recently joined the Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, as a Ph.D. student in Societal Computing. I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Fei Fang. Prior to CMU, I graduated from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science.

I hope to better understand how AI can address social issues and facilitate economic activities. Using tools from game theory, optimization, and machine learning, I develop algorithmic solutions to real-world problems in public security, team collaboration, and information elicitation.

I go by Ryan. If you are curious about the pronunciation of my first name, please come ask me :)
