Anay Mehrotra

Anay Mehrotra

I am a first-year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Yale University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Nisheeth Vishnoi. Prior to this, in May 2020, I completed my BTech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT Kanpur. In 2018, I attended one semester at EPFL (Switzerland) as an exchange student.

I am broadly interested in foundational problems in Algorithmic Fairness and Trustworthy Machine Learning.

A large portion of my research centers around the theme of “Algorithmic Decision Making in the presence of biases and uncertainty;” with connections to Learning, Mechanism Design, and Optimization.
