    Analysis of Network Loss Probability and Network Flow Replication Game, Adviser: Scott Shenker
  • Proposed the loss probability function by Markov Chain for finite M/M/1 queue in fractional replicated settings
  • Employed the idea of fractional replication of packets to adjust the loss probabilities of different users
  • Proposed a Network Flow Replication Game with a cost function of combination of loss probability and price
  • Computed the equilibrium and offered methods for service providers to affect replicating behavior by prices
Research Assistant, Intelligent Computing and Machine Learning Lab, Beihang University

    Data Mining Based on Collective Behavior Decomposition of Games, Adviser: Zengchang Qin
  • Explored the problem of learning collective behaviors by decomposing games and mechanism design in multi-agent systems
  • Presented the minority game data mining (MGDM) model and evolutionary mixed-games learning (EMGL) model in which we assume the aggregated information of market is generated by the combination of agent groups employing different atrategies
  • Applied MGDM and EMGL model to prediction market by testing on a few stocks randomly selected from Shanghai Stock Exchange and the USD-RMB exchange rate
    Sellers Information Analysis and Integrated Pricing Model for Online Trading, Adviser: Zengchang Qin
  • Wrote web crawler in Java searching for seller info on (a website for online shopping, similar to eBay)
  • Analyzed the sellers' information and reputation system using a supervised learning approach
  • Presented an integrated pricing model
Head of Technology Department, Microsoft Student Technology Club, Beihang University

    The Third Programming Competition for Beihang University Students, Support: Microsoft Research Asia
  • Implemented the platform by packaging APIs employed Blizzard JASS script for contestants to code AI agents
  • Designed the incentive and constraint mechanisms of the contest
