About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at UChicago, and direct the Sigma Research Lab (Strategic IntelliGence for Machine Agents).

Prior to UChicago, I was an assistant professor at UVA and (even before) a postdoc at Harvard hosted by Yiling Chen and David Parkes. I received a PhD in Computer Science from USC advised by Shaddin Dughmi and Milind Tambe (now at Harvard), after writing this dissertation which was recognized by the ACM SIGecom Dissertation Award and IFAAMAS Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award. My CV can be found here.

About My Research

I study intelligent decision making and machine learning in non-cooperative multi-agent environments, particularly in informationally complex setups (e.g., with asymmetric or limited access to information). The following are the main themes of my recent research focus. Please see our Sigma Research Lab for more details.
-- The economics of data/information, including selling, acquiring, and exploiting information
-- Machine learning in multi-agent setups under information asymmetry, incentive conflicts, and deception
-- Resource allocation in adversarial domains, with applications to security, privacy protection and fake news control

We are looking for 2-3 PhD students in 2022-2023. Please read this and check out UChicago CS if interested!
