Jugal Garg is an Assistant Professor in Industrial and Enterprise Systems Engineering and an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics, Germany, and Georgia Tech, USA. He received his Ph.D. from IIT-Bombay in 2012. Jugal's research explores computational and strategic aspects of equilibria in game theory and economics, and their connections with dynamical systems and learning. He is interested broadly in the design and analysis of algorithms, optimization, and mathematical programming. Currently, he is working on designing fast algorithms for computing market equilibria which have applications in network flow and fair division problems.
