Research

My research expertise lies in the area of Artificial Intelligence – machine learning and multi-agent systems. I am particularly interested in data-driven optimization (or prescriptive analytics),  optimization and coordination in multi-agent system, using techniques from data mining and machine learning, algorithmic design, mathematical modelling, and applied game theory. I enjoy optimizing decision making with big data, designing efficient algorithms, conducting simulations, and developing models and mechanisms involving cooperative or self-interested players. The application domains of my current research include e-commerce, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, and sharing economy.
