I'm a first year masters student in computer science at UCSC and lab manager at UCSC's LEEPS Lab under professor Dan Friedman. My research interests mostly lie in networking and game theory. My goals for graduate school are to do research that uses game theoretic concepts to solve networking problems. I am also interested in signal processing and would like to spend some time in grad school learning more about that field, potentially finding ways to combine it with my other interests.
The LEEPS lab is an experimental economics lab in UCSC's economics department that studies questions in behavioral economics and game theory. As LEEPS' lab manager I'm responsible for maintining all of the lab's computers, as well as organizing and assisting undergraduate programmers in writing economics experiments. During my time there, I've contributed to a number of published projects in the experimental economics field. You can see some of the projects I've contributed to on LEEPS' github.
I haven't completed any research projects or papers yet, but here are some papers I've read that are aligned with my interests:
- A Scalable, Commodity Data Center Network Architecture
- Efficient MAC in Cognitive Radio Systems: A Game-Theoretic Approach
- oTree—An open-source platform for laboratory, online, and field experiments
