Hamid Nazerzadeh's homepage
I am an Assistant Professor at the department of Data Sciences and Operations, Marshall School of Business, and (by courtesy) at the Computer Science department at University of Southern California.
I joined USC in 2011. Prior to that, I was a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research, New England. I received my Ph.D. in Operations Research from Stanford University and my B.Sc. from Sharif University of Technology. Here are links to my CV and Google Scholar page.
I am primarily interested in auction theory and algorithm design and their applications in operations and monetization of online markets.

I am currently visiting Google Research in New York, NY.
