Vahab Mirrokni is a distinguished scientist, heading the New York and Zurich algorithms research groups at Google Research. The group consists of three main sub-teams: market algorithms, large-scale graph mining, and large-scale optimization. He received his PhD from MIT in 2005 and his B.Sc. from Sharif University of Technology in 2001. He joined Google Research in 2008, after spending a couple of years at Microsoft Research, MIT and Amazon.com. He is the co-winner of paper awards at KDD'15, ACM EC'08, and SODA'05. His research areas include algorithms, distributed and stochastic optimization, and computational economics. Recently he has been working on various algorithmic problems in machine learning, online optimization and dynamic mechanism design, and distributed algorithms for large-scale graph mining.
