Associate Professor of Computer Science
Matt Weinberg’s primary research interest is in Algorithmic Mechanism Design: algorithm design where users have their own incentives. His research focuses on domains such as auctions, cryptocurrencies, and (more recently) “social good” domains.
Before joining the faculty at Princeton, Weinberg spent two years as a postdoc in Princeton’s CS Theory group and was a research fellow at the Simons Institute during the fall of 2015 (Economics and Computation) and fall of 2016 (Algorithms and Uncertainty). He completed his Ph.D. at MIT in 2014, where he was advised by Costis Daskalakis, and graduated from Cornell University in 2010 with a B.A. in math.
