Welcome to Peng's Homepage

My name is Peng Shi and I am currently a PhD Candidate at the MIT Operations Research Center. This is my homepage containing my research and professional information.

My research advisor is Prof. Itai Ashlagi from the MIT Sloan School of Management. My research interests are at the interface of Operations Research and Economics.

My current research is focused in the design of markets or allocation mechanisms that bring about positive social impact, while also taking into account strategic behavior, fairness, and practical constraints. Specific topics I'm studying include how to improve the mechanisms used in assigning kids to public schools, and how to optimize under uncertainty and align incentives in Paired Kidney Exchange. (See here for more details.) If you are also interested in such topics, please feel free to contact me.
