Assistant Professor, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Ruta Mehta is a postdoctoral fellow in the college of computing at Georgia Tech, working with Vijay V. Vazirani. Her research lies at the intersection of theoretical computer science, game theory, and mathematical economics, and their applications to evolution, dynamical systems and learning. She has worked on computability of equilibria, both market and Nash, under various settings, and also on understanding the impact of strategic behavior in multi-agent situations. In addition she has explored learning economic parameters through revealed preferences, and genetic evolution under sexual reproduction. She earned a PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, under the guidance of Milind Sohoni, and won an ACM India Doctoral Dissertation Award in 2012.
