Primarily, I am interested in improving the algorithms and solutions of Computer Science by applying concepts from the social sciences of Psychology, Criminology, Sociology, and Anthropology.
Specifically, I am interested in applying human behavioral models to multi-agent systems with a large focus on human decision making.
My previous work on Wildlife and Endangered Species Conservation and my current work on Enforcing Compliance with Environmental Regulations are natural application domains for my research interests.
Previously, I worked with Haiping Xu , my M.S. advisor, on developing a framework to combat online auction fraud using multi-agent systems and machine learning.
This work certainly sparked my interest in studying human behavior and applying those insights to Computer Science solutions.
