Welcome to Zoli's website!

My full name is Zoltán Hidvégi, and I am originally from Hungary. I have received an M.S. degree in Mathematics from the Eötvös Loránd University in 1995. In 1997, I quit my Ph.D. studies in Math and moved to the US to work for IBM. Since then, I spend most of my time in Austin, Texas. In the summer of 2007, I have received a Ph.D. from the Department of Information, Risk, & Operations Management at the University of Texas of Austin, working at the Center for Research in Electronic Commerce under the guidance of Prof. Andrew B. Whinston. In parallel to completing my Ph.D. I have been working full-time at IBM Austin, where I work on the VHDL/Verilog functional cycle simulators that are used to verify the IBM PowerPC and mainframe microprocessors and systems.

My Ph.D. research was an interdiscplinary conbination of Business, Computer Science and Economics. My most recently published research is on auctions, especially regarding shill bidding and buy-price auctions.
