Ryan Shi

I am a first-year PhD student in Societal Computing in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. 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. My CV can be found here.

My research focuses on leveraging data to aid decision making in strategic interactions. Using tools from game theory, optimization, and machine learning, I develop algorithmic solutions to real-world problems in cybersecurity and sustainability. I have also worked on problems in public security, team collaboration, and information elicitation.

I am open to new ideas and possible domains of collaboration. You may reach me at ryanshi[attt]cmu[dottt]edu.
