Rediet Abebe

Graduate Resident Fellow
414 Cook Main

Rediet was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where she spent the majority of her childhood reading books and thinking about Euclidean geometry before she found herself as an undergraduate in mathematics at Harvard during the fall of 2009. She has since studied math and computer science at various institutions and is very excited to land at Cornell as a Ph.D. student in computer science!

She is interested in problems at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, and social sciences, including social networks, computational social science, and mechanism design. Currently, her work explores opinion formation and dynamics in social networks, and the interaction between inequality, networks, and technology.

When she is not working in Gates Hall, she can be found lifting at Teagle, volunteering at various local and national political campaign offices, or at Autumn Leaves Used Books.
