About Me

Hi, my name is Zhuoshu Li. I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. My advisor is Prof. Sanmay Das.

My broad research interests are in the areas of multiagent systems, computational economics, and machine learning, with a focus on the design and analysis of mechanisms and information structures through the ''computational lens''. Besides, I also work on reinforcement learning.

I received my B.E. degree from Beihang University, Beijing, China in 2013. In 2016, I was an intern at Huawei Noah's Ark Lab, Hong Kong, and researched on designing faster and more comprehensive algorithms for reinforcement learning in non-stationary environments. In 2017, I interned at Facebook and contributed to developing a reinforcement learning framework and online algorithms for Instagram feed ranking.
