Robin Bowers

they/them — CV


I’m a PhD student in the CS Theory group at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I’m co-advised by Dr. Bo Waggoner and Dr. Rafael Frongillo.

I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science, particularly algorithmic game theory. My recent work has focused on mechanism design and information elicitation.


I presented a poster on High Welfare Matching Markets via Descending Price at the Simons Institute Workshop on Societal Considerations and Applications in October, 2022.

Works in Progress

I am currently working on “Wagering for Aggregation:” using wagering markets as a tool from which to aggregate individual agents’ private information.
