Hi, I’m Yifan!
I’m a third-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. My research interest is on algorithmic information elicitation and valuation of data. I design optimal scoring rules to elicit costly information, and also to evaluate the value of information.
