Ruggiero Cavallo
Principal Research Scientist
Yahoo Research (part of Verizon Media Group)
New York, NY




♞ New working paper: Social Distancing Equilibrium.

For work I do a mix of computer science and microeconomics research, focused on game theory, auctions, and mechanism design.

Some academic history:

- Started college at Hamilton, finished at Cornell (computer science).
- PhD from Harvard (computer science, advisor: David Parkes).
- Postdocs at UPenn and Yahoo Research / MSR.

Some work history:

Between college and grad school I spent a year writing programs for a space telescope. After a postdoc at Yahoo, I was a founding member of the Microsoft Research lab in New York, then I came back to Yahoo in the Fall of 2013 and have been there ever since. We still call it Yahoo Research, but the organization is now a part of Verizon.

I like to write and play songs. I ♥ NY. I'm married and we have three children.
