Personal profile


I'm currently doing a Ph.D. in muti-agent reinforcement learning and its applications to the evolution of cooperation at the university of manchester. I am supervised by Prof. Xiaojun Zeng.  

Research interests

My research has focused primarily on the emergence and evolution of cooperation. In particular, I have been looking at how social exclusion and expulsion mechanisms can lead to cooperation. Currently, I'm looking to analyze the difference in the performance of cooperative facilitation mechanisms under social learning and reinforcement learning.
