Short Bio

I am an Assistant Professor at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, a new graduate-level university affiliated with MIT.  My students and I have started a research lab.  My research interests include human-maching interaction, multi-agent learning, game theory, robotics, and interactive artificial learning. Current applications include smart power grids, transportation systems, and autism therapy.


The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology is accepting applications from students interested in entering its Ph.D. program.  Ph.D. candidates at the Masdar Institute will have a thesis committee consisting of professors from both the Masdar Institute and MIT.  Furthermore, Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to spend up to a year at MIT taking courses and conducting research.  For more information, please see www.masdar.ac.ae.  Also, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
