He holds an MSc from the University of British Columbia (2010) and a BSc from Simon Fraser University (2000). He studies problems at the intersection of behavioral game theory and computer science, with a focus on applying both machine learning techniques and models derived from experimental and behavioral economics to the prediction of human behavior in strategic settings. He also studies the implications of behavioral game theoretic models on multiagent systems and mechanisms.
