The University of Southampton

Dr. Jie Zhang

Academic Staff

Hi there! I am a Lecturer at the Electronics and Computer Science department. I am a member of the Agents, Interaction and Complexity (AIC) Research Group. Prior to Southampton, I was a research associate at the University of Oxford and was a postdoc at Aarhus University. I received my PhD from City University of Hong Kong and visited the EconCS group at Harvard University for six months.  



Research interests

I am interested in any research agenda that studies, incentivizes, and characterizes people's behavior in social and economical activities, from both theoretical and experimental perspectives. Topics I have been working on so far include characterizing agents' incentives in marketplaces, equilibrium analysis of traders' behavior in predictions, resource allocation such as fair division and cake-cutting, as well as query complexity of fixed-point models, etc. These are the motivating themes in algorithmic game theory and mechanism design. Recently I become enthusiastic about modeling and resolving practical problems (in terms of maximizing social welfare or revenue) by employing game theory and optimization methodologies.
