Yuqing Kong


I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science and Engineering Division at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Grant Schoenebeck. I received my bachelor degree in mathematics from University of Science and Technology of China.

Research Interests:

The intersection of theoretical computer science and the areas of economics: information elicitation, prediction markets, mechanism design, and the future applications of these areas to crowdsourcing and machine learning.
