Yu Luo is selected as a finalist for the CAST Director's Student Presentation Award. He will present his work “The Control of Self-Interested Agents: Learning from Nature’s Wisdom of Crowds” during the 2016 AIChE Annual Meeting held in San Francisco this November. As a finalist, Yu is also invited to the CAST Division dinner for recognition and will receive $500 travel support. Yu is currently a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Prof. Venkat Venkatasubramanian's group. His research focuses on the intersection of process systems engineering, game theory, and artificial intelligence. He is particularly interested in multi-agent collective dynamics and systemic risk. When Yu is not solving equations, you might find him sketching portraits of famous people.
