Congratulations to Dr. George Saad who just defended his dissertation (with distinction) yesterday on “Selfishness and Malice in Distributed Systems”.  George’s dissertation focused on designing 1) algorithms for self-healing in networks with Byzantine nodes and 2) designing mediators to improve social welfare in a type of El-Farol game with both positive and negative networks effects.  Here are slides from his excellent talk.

George will be taking a position at the Silicon Valley startup Jasper Technologies next month.  On his committee were Maxwell Young (Drexel University), Tom Hayes and Dorian Arnold.

Congratulations George!
