I am a PhD student in Texas A&M University currently doing research on electricity market.

What I am interested in is the overall networks of interconnected subsystems dynamically evolving over time including communication networks, automated sensor networks, smart power grids, and the other various types of controlled systems and markets. My main concern is to understand the evolvement of complex networks by interactive individuals.

My study focuses on design of network mechanisms and optimal strategies for individual participants. Specifically, my study aims to answer how a single agent in either reactive and uncertain dynamic environment can make an optimal decision with limited information under communication and computation constraints, and how can we design an efficient network of such agents which would ultimately lead to global optimaility.
