ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN COMPUTER SCIENCE, UNIVERSITY OF BIRMINGHAM
My research interests are in the areas of game theory, multi-agent systems, reinforcement learning, control theory. Specifically, in my research I focus on the coordination and consensus of agents in game frameworks where cooperative/competitive interactions occur. Multi-agent reinforcement learning (MARL) in games and applications to collective decision-making and materials is currently my main research focus.
2024 Jan - Aditya and Aju have joined our project "HuMaT" as research associate and PhD student. A warm welcome to both!
2023 Dec - My PhD student Tuo Zhang has attended his first CDC conference and presented our work on MARL in feedback-evolving games.
2023 Nov - Truly honoured to host and be part of the course on "Game Theory with Engineering Applications" at UoB with my mentor and friend Prof Dario Bauso! The course is organised by the European Embedded Control Institute. The complete programme can be found here.
2023 Oct - Two amazing opportunities to join our project "HuMaT" in collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute. Links on the right widget.
2023 Sep - Our paper "Evolutionary Dynamics on a Regular Networked Structured and Unstructured Multi-population" has been accepted in the International Journal for Robust and Nonlinear Control, Special Issue on Game Theory and Control for Cyber-Physical Systems.
2023 Aug - Our work "A Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning Approach to Promote Cooperation in Evolutionary Games on Networks with Environmental Feedback" has been accepted for presentation at CDC in Singapore. Well done, Tuo!
2023 Jan - Tuo Zhang has joined my group. Welcome, Tuo!
2023 Jan - I have an open PhD position available to join the University of Birmingham. For more information click here!
2022 Dec - Presented our work "Lower Network Degrees Promote Cooperation in the Prisoner’s Dilemma with Environmental Feedback" at the invited session Dynamic Games and Networked Systems. Slides are available here.
2022 Sep - I am happy to announce that the Special Issue on Federated Learning for Internet of Things in the Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks (ISSN 2224-2708) is now open for submissions. Deadline for submission: March 31st, 2023.
2022 Aug - An intense and informative week hosting 2 young students (Emily and Layan) within the In2Science Programme. A pleasure to contribute to the programme!
2022 Aug - Excited to share that I have been appointed External Examiner at Kingston University London. Looking forward to work with colleagues at Kingston and support their quality teaching and learning!
2022 Jul - After a successful collaboration with Bloc Digital for the KTP project on digital twins for virtual reality training, the results of our work have been published in the paper "Digital Twinning remote laboratories for online practical learning" and is now available here.
