Carnegie Mellon University

Paul Gölz is a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at CMU and is advised by Ariel Procaccia (now at Harvard).

Paul’s research applies tools from AI, algorithms, and game theory to help society make better decisions. A specific interest of his are emerging forms of democratic participation and how these processes can be supported by axiomatic and algorithmic analysis. Recently, he has been working on sampling algorithms for citizens' assemblies, which combine demographic representation with probabilistic fairness guarantees to individuals.

Paul earned his Bachelor’s degree at Saarland University and was previously supported by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation.
