### Long bio:

Tim Roughgarden is a Professor in the Computer Science Department at Columbia University and the Founding Head of Research at a16z crypto.
Prior to joining Columbia, he spent 15 years on the computer science faculty at Stanford, following a PhD at Cornell and a postdoc at UC Berkeley.
His research interests include the many connections between computer
science and economics, as well as the design, analysis,
applications, and limitations of algorithms.
For his research, he has been awarded the
ACM Grace Murray Hopper Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for
Scientists and Engineers (PECASE),
the Kalai Prize in Computer Science and Game Theory,
the Social Choice and Welfare Prize,
the Mathematical Programming Society's Tucker
Prize, the INFORMS Lanchester Prize, and the EATCS-SIGACT Gödel Prize.
He was an invited speaker at the 2006 International Congress of Mathematicians and the Shapley Lecturer at the 2008 World Congress of the Game Theory Society.
He is a Fellow of the Guggenheim Foundation, the ACM, the Game Theory Society, and the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory.
He has written or edited ten books and monographs, including *Twenty Lectures on Algorithmic Game Theory* (2016), *Beyond the Worst-Case Analysis of Algorithms* (2020), and the *Algorithms Illuminated* book series (2017-2020).
