The EconCS Group pursues research, both theoretical and experimental, at the intersection between computer science and economics.

The EconCS group at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences draws on methodologies from AI, multi-agent systems, computer science theory, microeconomic theory, optimization and distributed systems.

We are interested in electronic auctions, mechanisms and markets, peer production and social computing, and in the constructive use of economic methodologies within computational systems.

A central challenge is to resolve conflicts between game-theoretic and computational constraints.
