Will Haskell earned his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in Winter 2005, and his Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of California Berkeley in Spring 2011. He joined the University of Southern California in Fall 2011, where he works with Milind Tambe (Computer Science) and Rahul Jain (Electrical Engineering).
Will's research lies at the intersection of risk management, data-driven decision making, and large-scale implementation. His current projects include risk-aware Markov decision processes, and robust game theory.
