Hi there! My name is Miriam. Welcome to my personal homepage.
My research interests lie at the interface of computer science and economics, in particular Algorithmic Game Theory and Mechanism Design. I am also interested in Data Science, Optimisation, and generally interdisciplinary approaches to economics, computer science, and statistics. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, both from the University of Munich (LMU Munich) as well as a Master of Science in Operational Research with Data Science from the University of Edinburgh. I am a PhD student at Imperial College London under supervision of Dr. Dario Paccagnan. I am also a DeepMind scholar. I study Algorithmic Game Theory and data-driven decision making, and am interested in learning in games, non-rational behaviour, and data-driven incentives for performance improvements - and much else!

A physicist, a chemist and an economist are stranded on an island, with nothing to eat. A can of soup washes ashore. The physicist says, “Let's smash the can open with a rock.” The chemist says, “Let’s build a fire and heat the can first.” The economist says, “Let's assume that we have a can-opener...”
A mathematician, an engineer, and a computer scientist are riding in a car, enjoying the countryside, when suddenly the engine stops working. The mathematician says, "We came past a gas station a few minutes ago. Someone should go back and ask for help." The engineer says, "I should have a look at the engine. Perhaps, I can fix it." The computer scientist says: "Why don't we just open the doors, slam them shut, and see if everything works again?"
A computer scientist, an economist, and a statistician go hunting. They spot a deer, and take aim. The economist shoots first and misses 10 meters to the right. The computer scientist shoots next and misses 10 meters to the left. The statistician then throws down their gun and proclaims, “we got it!”
