Dr. Sigal Oren

Assistant professor

Research: My research is in the area of Algorithmic Game Theory. I'm using tools from theoretical computer science and game theory to get a better understanding of social phenomena. On of the questions I’m interested in is how individuals form their opinions and how does this affect political polarization. Additionally, I’m interested in connecting between computer science and behavioral economics. This includes using tools from theoretical computer science to study cognitive biases and incorporating cognitive biases into common algorithmic game theory settings.
