Hey there! I am Stratis, 1st-year PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems. I am very fortunate to be a member of the Networks - Learning group and be advised by Dr. Manuel Gomez Rodriguez. I am mainly interested in algorithmic challenges arising when applying machine learning in order to inform decisions about humans who present strategic behavior. More broadly, I am interested in machine learning, optimization, and algorithmic game theory with a special focus on real-world applications.
