I am a postdoctoral research associate in
at the University of Southern California, working
with Professor Milind Tambe and the
Teamcore research group. I received my Ph.D.
from the Department of Computer Science,
University of British Columbia, advised by Professor Kevin Leyton-Brown.
Much of my research is addressing computational problems arising in game theory and multiagent systems, including the efficient computation of solution concepts such as Nash equilibrium,
Stackelberg equilibrium and correlated equilibrium, as well as applications of game-theoretic computation to real-world domains such as large-scale infrastructure security and electronic commerce. For more information please see my
CV, research statement and teaching statement.
Our paper Polynomial-time
Computation of Exact Correlated Equilibrium in Compact Games (joint with Kevin
Leyton-Brown) won the best student paper award at the
ACM Conference on Electronic Commerce (ACM-EC), June 2011.
I received the 2012 Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association (CAIAC) Doctoral Dissertation Award for the best doctoral thesis in AI completed at a
Canadian University in 2011, and am the runner up of the IFAAMAS-11 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award.
Our paper Game-theoretic Randomization for Security Patrolling with Dynamic Execution Uncertainty (joint with Zhengyu Yin, Chao Zhang, Sarit Kraus, and Milind Tambe) was a finalist for the Best Paper Award at AAMAS 2013.
Our work for the PROTECT project at New York, which provides the US Coast Guard randomized patrol schedules for protecting the Staten Island Ferry,
was the topic of a Business Insider article. See also our research paper on ferry protection (joint with Fei Fang and Milind Tambe), presented at AAMAS 2013.
Manish Jain, Bo An, Samarth Swarup and I organized the , held March 24-26 at Stanford.
2014 AAAI Spring Symposium on Applied Computational Game Theory Starting Fall 2014, I will join Trinity University as an assistant professor in computer science.
