Research Goals

In our increasingly networked world, fewer and fewer decisions can be made in isolation. Consequently, "AI agents" --- artificially intelligent, programmed decision-makers --- must cooperate with, compete with, and trade with other agents, both human and artificial.

This trend drives my twin research goals:
  1. To design and implement AI agents that interact effectively in multiagent environments.
  2. To understand, explain, and accurately predict the dynamics of such interactions.

In pursuing these goals, I am a scientist who tackles her research with ammunition both theoretical and practical, drawing from a variety of disciplines including AI, decision theory, game theory, and economics.
