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:
- To design and implement AI agents that interact effectively in multiagent environments.
- 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
