Yevgeniy Vorobeychik, PhD

Associate Professor of Computer Science
Washington University in St. Louis

Yevgeniy Vorobeychik is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis.  

Most of his research work crosses disciplinary boundaries. Much of his work is in Multiagent Systems, at the intersection of Computer Science and Economics (especially Game Theory). He particularly enjoys applying concepts from game theory to a broad array of problems, such as optimal security resource allocation, robust machine learning, risk analysis of health data de-identification strategies, and game theoretic design of broadly neutralizing antibodies. 

Previously, he was an Assistant PRofessor of Computer Science at Vanderbilt University and Principal Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. Between 2008 and 2010 he was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Pennsylvania Computer and Information Science department. He received Ph.D. (2008) and M.S.E. (2004) degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan, and a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering from Northwestern University. Dr. Vorobeychik has published over 100 research articles on these topics. Dr. Vorobeychik was nominated for the 2008 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award and received honorable mention for the 2008 IFAAMAS Distinguished Dissertation Award. In 2012 he was nominated for the Sandia Employee Recognition Award for Technical Excellence. He was also a recipient of a NSF IGERT interdisciplinary research fellowship at the University of Michigan, as well as a distinguished Computer Engineering undergraduate award at Northwestern University.
