Before joining CMU, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) at Harvard University, advised by David Parkes and Barbara Grosz. She received her Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern California in June 2016, advised by Milind Tambe. She received her bachelor degree from the Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University in July 2011.
Her research lies in the field of artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems, focusing on computational game theory with applications to security and sustainability domains. Her dissertation was selected as the runner-up for the IFAAMAS-16 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award. Her work has won the Innovative Application Award at Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI’16), the Outstanding Paper Award in Computational Sustainability Track at the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI’15). Her work on “Protecting Moving Targets with Mobile Resources” has been deployed by the US Coast Guard for protecting the Staten Island Ferry in New York City since April 2013. Her work on designing patrol strategies to combat illegal poaching has lead to the deployment of PAWS application in a conservation area in Southeast Asia for protecting tigers.
