Bryan Wilder About Me

I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at University of Southern California, advised by Professor Milind Tambe. My research uses artificial intelligence to improve decision making in domains which present large scale societal challenges, such as healthcare and security. On a technical level, my work draws on game theory, social network analysis, machine learning, and optimization.

Before coming to USC, I received a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Central Florida, where I worked primarily with Gita Sukthankar and Ken Stanley. I also spent three summers at the Santa Fe Institute, working with Anne Kandler and Laura Fortunato.

I am supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, and by a USC Annenberg Fellowship.
