Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Masdar Institute of Science and Technology
I'm an associate prof at Masdar In-stitute, a new research university in Abu Dhabi that is in collaboration with MIT.
I study human-machine interaction, dis-tributed (multi-agent) systems, robotics, game theory, and machine learning.
My students and I have established the Distributed Human-Machine Systems Laboratory at Masdar Institute.
■ [Nov 2013] JAIR accepted my paper on minimizing ''disappointment'' in repeated interactions — I'm very excited about this paper. We
recently paired S++ against people ... total take-down!
■ [Oct 2013] Vimitha's MS Thesis work (extended) was accepted for publication in IEEE THMS.
■ [Sep 2013] The DHMS Lab is growing. We welcomed three new PhD students and two new MS students this fall.
■ [Summer 2013] Rafael successfully tested a beta-version of The Junior High Game, a web-based game designed to investigate strate-
gic interactions in social settings. It received rave reviews. A beta version will be released to the public soon. Look out Angry Birds! ☺
■ [May 2013] Our research proposal on systemic risk in power systems was one of three flagship research projects funded by the MI-MIT
agreement this year ($3.24 million over 3 years).
■ [April 2013] Yomna presented her MS Thesis work at IEEE SSCI.
■ [Dec 2012] Vahagn's MS Thesis work (extended) was published in JHRI.
