About me

In 2018 I am joining the Computer Science Department at the Technion -- Israel Institute of Technology as an assistant professor (מרצה בכירה).
Previously I greatly enjoyed my post-doc with Noam Nisan and Michal Feldman.

Inbal Talgam-Cohen is a computer science researcher working in the intersection between algorithms, economics and operations research. In 2018 she will join the Technion as an assistant professor of computer science. She received her PhD from Stanford University, advised by Tim Roughgarden, followed by a Marie Curie post-doc. She spent summers interning at Microsoft Research and Yahoo! Labs. Inbal's awards include Best Doctoral Dissertation from ACM SIGecom, the Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship (SIGF), and Best Student Paper Award at ACM EC. She holds an MSc from the Weizmann Institute, advised by Uriel Feige, as well as a law LLB, and served for one year as judicial clerk to Supreme Court Justice Hon. Esther Hayut.

Research interests

Algorithmic game theory; Theory of computation; Optimization; Internet economics; Market design; Auctions
I'm interested in the design and analysis of algorithms that shape societal applications -- including economic transactions, resource allocation, and decision making -- and in understanding the friction between beautiful algortihmic/economic theory and practice.
