I am Ceyhun Eksin, a postdoc at Georgia Institute of Technology affiliated with the groups of J.S. Shamma at the School of ECE, and of J.S. Weitz at the School of Biology. I completed my Ph.D. at the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, University of Pennsylvania under the supervision of Alejandro Ribeiro. I received my bachelor's degree in Control Engineering from Istanbul Technical University in 2005. I also have master's degrees in Industrial Engineering from Bogazici University and in Statistics from Wharton School. You can obtain more detailed information about me from my CV.
My research interests include game theory, distributed optimization, signal processing and control theory. In particular, I focus on understanding and designing networked interactions of agents in social and technological settings. While we can design how agents behave in technological settings, in social settings our interest is to understand behavior and then design the system so that we improve efficiency of the system. In my research I use Bayesian games as a model of optimal agent behavior in networks. My research on Bayesian Network Games, where individuals interact over a network and have uncertainty about the state of the world, focuses on the interplay between understanding emerging behavior and designing optimal algorithms. Besides game theoretic methods, I also make use of distributed network optimization techniques in the design of algorithms. I invite you to visit the Research section for a more detailed explanation of each research thrust or you can find their specifics in my Publications.
