Riccardo Colini Baldeschi

Researcher, Core Data Science

I am a research scientist in the Facebook Core Data Science team. My main interests are in mechanism design, auction theory, approximation algorithms and combinatorial optimization problems. Before joining Facebook, I was a postdoctoral research at LUISS working on congestion games and mechanism design. I obtained my PhD in computer engineering at Sapienza, University of Rome with a thesis on approximation algorithms and mechanism design.
