Assistant Professor, Computer Science

College of Computing & Informatics

Gkatzelis is a computer science professor with expertise in developing and analyzing algorithms for fair resource allocation and applying game theory to problem-solving situations. His research lies at the intersection of computer science and economics and is informed his industry experience at Google, Microsoft and HP Labs.


In his work with algorithm mechanism design, Gkatzelis looks at how the programs can be applied to allocating resources in a fair way. He also looks at the application of game theory — a tool for predicting strategic interactions — to situations where the goal of the interactions is a fair outcome for all parties involved.
