Research Summary

An important theme that resides at the center of my research is the interaction of multiple entities. It spans across most of my works, from algorithmic game theory to distributed ledgers. Indeed, compared to computer systems from many decades ago, where each computer ran individually to execute single-machine programs, today’s computer systems and networks often have more than one participant interact in a distributed environment. E-commerce, social networks, and multi-robot systems are all handy examples, among many others. The participants include both human beings and artificial intelligence, and their objectives in the same system may vary from one to another. Often, by making individual decisions and taking individual actions, they collectively make progress and achieve the system’s goal set forth by its designer, such as social efficiency, global consensus, etc. My research is to design such systems and characterize their behavior using rigorous theory, so that individual decision-making leads the system towards its global goal, not only efficiently, but also securely and robustly under adversarial environments.
