Hi, I’m Yifan!
I’m a second-year PhD student at Northwestern University. I’m advised by Prof. Jason Hartline. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University in 2020, where I worked with Prof. Yuqing Kong.
I have a broad interest in theoretical computer science and economics. Currently, I work on designing scoring rules to incentivize effort in peer grading. I’m also working on the application of optimal scoring rules in other areas, such as machine learning and HCI.
