I have left the University of Paderborn. Please visit my personal web page at www.florian-schoppmann.de for information about my work.
From February 2006 to August 2009, I was a Ph.D. student in Prof. Burkhard Monien's group, working on algorithmic game theory. For most of the time, from April 2006 to March 2009, I was supported by a fellowship by the International Graduate School Dynamic Intelligent Systems. I completed my Ph.D. on June 15, 2009. The title of my thesis is Collusion-Resistant Cost-Sharing Mechanisms: Design Techniques, Analyses, Trade-Offs.
During my Ph.D. studies in Paderborn, I worked on:
Algorithmic game theory, i.e., problems at the intersection of theoretical computer science, microeconomics, and (usually discrete) mathematics. Selected topics included:
- Cost-Sharing Mechanisms
- Selfish Routing
- Competitive Location
