Hebrew University

Yahav Bechavod is a PhD candidate at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, advised by Katrina Ligett. He is an Apple PhD fellow in AI/ML, and a recipient of the Charles Clore Foundation PhD Fellowship. He also holds an MS (Computer Science) and a BS (Mathematics and Computer Science), both from the Hebrew University. Yahav's research explores foundational questions in the field of algorithmic fairness, such as: (1) characterizing the amount of friction between utility and fairness in various settings, (2) providing novel algorithms guaranteeing high utility and fairness in the face of limited or partial feedback, and (3) making clever use of human feedback in the learning loop in auditing for unfairness.
