Justin Payan

I am a 6th year PhD candidate at UMass Amherst, where I apply data science and market design to problems of societal importance.

I am advised by Yair Zick. Before starting my PhD, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at the University of Georgia and worked for a year at Vertica as a software engineer. During my PhD, I have enjoyed interning at Amazon Alexa (2020, 2021), Microsoft (2022), and Adobe Research (2023).

We recently held a workshop on Computational Fair Division at IJCAI 2023.

I am currently on the academic job market for positions starting Fall 2024.

My resume is available here, and my research statement is available here.
