My research on computational game theory lies at the boundary of economics and computer science.
Game theory, traditionally a subfield of economics, uses mathematical models to study interactions among multiple independent strategic decision makers.
I use game theory to study mult-agent interactions that arise in artificial intelligence and other areas of computer science.
I also use computer science techniques to extend the reach of game-theoretic models.
With agent-based simulations, the task of constructing a normal-form game model can be simplified and even automated.
With machine learning, game models and equilibrium computation can generalize from incomplete data.
If you are a student who is interested in working on these problems, please stop by my office or send me an email.
