Hello, this is the academic site of Chris Riederer. I'm a Ph.D. student at Columbia University, working in the Social Mobile Lab of Augustin Chaintreau. My research focuses on human mobility, privacy, and economics.

A B O U T _ ( I N _ B R I E F )

In brief, I grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Yale University in 2010. After working for a year at a financial software firm in Boston, and a summer at Telefonica Research in Barcelona, I began my Ph.D. in Fall, 2011. I spent the summer of 2012 working at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. I was a Brown Fellow at the Brown Institute for 2012 -2013. During the summer of 2014, I worked on Google Cardboard. In the summer of 2015 I returned to Google and used data mining on location data. The fall of 2015 saw me interning at Microsoft Research in NYC, trying to divise computational methods to improve people's understanding of big numbers. I am currently buckled down working on my Ph.D.!
