Stephen P. LalleySteven P. Lalley is a Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Chicago. He is a leading mathematical statistician and probabilist. Together with Glen, he conducted the first rigorous game theoretic analysis of QV.

Nicholas Stephanopoulos is a Professor of Law at the University of Chicago and one of the leading experts on election law. Together with Eric, he helped proposed practical ways that QV could be incorporated into existing American election laws and how it would achieve goals often sought by lawyers in that context.

Bharat ChandarBharat Chandar works at the economics group at Uber Technologies and is a former student of Glen’s. Together they have investigated computationally the performance of QV in game theoretic models of small group interactions.

Richard ZeckhauserRichard Zeckhauser is the Frank P. Ramsey Professor of Political Economy at the Harvard Kennedy School. A pioneer in the field of mechanism design, he helped influence many Radical Markets ideas, especially proposing with Aanund Hylland in the early 1980’s the first version of QV for continuous decisions. The paper was never published the paper and Glen is working with them to revise and publish it.

Aanund HyllandAanund Hylland is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Oslo. Together with Richard, he was an early pioneer of Radical Markets ideas and is collaborating with Glen on publishing their work on QV for continuous decisions.

Jerry GreenJerry Green is the John Leverett and David A. Wells Professor of Political Economy in the Department of Economics at Harvard University. Together with his collaborator Jean-Jacques Laffont, he rediscovered Vickrey’s forgotten work and helped found the field of mechanism design. He is currently collaborating with Glen on applying QV to land assembly, the original motivation for the idea.

Scott Duke KominersScott Duke Kominers is the MBA Class of 1960 Associate Professor of Business Administration in the Entrepreneurial Management Group of the Harvard Business School.

Nicole ImmorlicaNicole Immorlica is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research New England, where she is one of Glen’s closest colleagues. She is a computer scientist by training but has been working with Glen on versions of QV for decisions that have more than two alternatives.

Katrina LigettKatrina Ligett is a Senior Lecturer of Computer Science at the Hebrew University. Like Nicole she is a computer scientist by training and is collaborating with Glen and Nicole on QV for multiple alternatives.

Sang-Seung YiSang-Seung Yi is a Professor of Economics at Yonsei University. An expert on corporate governance and manipulation of corporate voting systems, he has worked with Eric and Glen on using QV to clean up Korea’s byzantine corporate governance system.
