Hi! I am Divyarthi Mohan (I also go by Divya). I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University hosted by Prof. Michal Feldman. During Fall'22, I was a J.P. Morgan Research Fellow at the Simons Institute in Berkeley for the Graph Limits and Processes on Networks program.
I received my PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Matt Weinberg. During my PhD, I had the opportunity to work as a research intern at Microsoft and Google.
My research interest broadly lies at the intersection of Computer Science and Economics. I am primarily interested in Algorithmic Mechanism Design, Social Learning, and Strategic Communication. I am also interested in other areas of Theoretical Computer Science like Approximation Algorithms, Dynamic Algorithms, and Online Algorithms.
