Sai Srivatsa


I am a fourth year PhD student in Computer Science at Harvard University, advised by Prof. David Parkes. My research explores topics at the intersection of Deep Learning, Algorithmic Economics and Multi-Agent Systems. I'm also a student researcher working with the Market Algorithms Team at Google Research.

Before coming to Harvard, I was a Research Fellow at the Machine Learning and Optimization group, Microsoft Research, India. Previously, I received my B.Tech in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
