Hello there!


I'm Nicholas, a third-year PhD (DPhil) student in Computer Science at the University of Oxford, supervised by Edith Elkind. I'm broadly interested in algorithmic game theory, mechanism design, and computational social choice.

I completed my undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at the National University of Singapore (2017 - 2021), where I worked with Yair Zick, Jonathan Scarlett and Harold Soh. My undergraduate thesis in Math delved into individual and group fairness in the allocation of indivisible goods (for which I was awarded the Lijen Industrial Development Medal for best Honours project), whereas my thesis in Computer Science established a game-theoretic framework for large-scale human-robot interaction.
