I’m interested in algorithmic problems arising from applications of game theory. My research is concerned with how to find optimal strategies to play against intelligent agents, especially in real-world scenarios with all sorts of complexities. My past and current projects are mostly about resource allocation problems in the security domain (security games) and optimization of transportation systems (see also my dblp page).
I'm a 3rd year DPhil (PhD) student supervised by Edith Elkind and Michael Wooldridge. Prior to coming to Oxford, I was a research associate in Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) from 2015-2016. I obtained my Master’s degree in 2015 from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Institute of Computing Technology), where I was advised by Bo An.
