I am a researcher with a strong theoretical basis in artificial intelligence. Specifically, reinforcement learning, combinatorial search, multiagent route assignment, game theory, flow and convex optimization, and multiagent modeling and simulation. I view myself as part of the AI community where my work is highly cited. I strive to further the impact of my applicable expertise for solving real-life problems while simultaneously continuing to make theoretical advances that justify the proposed solutions.
