Gerdus Benade is an Assistant Professor in the Information Systems Department at Questrom School of Business. His research considers questions at the intersection of computer science and economics, like making group decisions under uncertainty and the fair division of resources in dynamic settings. He is particularly interested in applications of optimization and computational social choice to traditionally political issues like voting, participatory budgeting and political districting or gerrymandering. Before coming to Boston, he completed his PhD in Operations Research in the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, where he was fortunate to be advised by Ariel D. Procaccia and John Hooker. He also had the opportunity to work with Andrea Qualizza in the supply chain optimization technologies (SCOT) team at Amazon in the summer of 2017. Before moving to the US he completed an MSc degree under Jan van Vuuren and Alewyn Burger at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.
