I am a PhD candidate under a supervision of Dr Long Tran-Thanh and Dr Sebastian Stein in Agents, Interaction and Complexity (AIC) research group. I am carrying out a research on the Proof-of-Work blockchain mining in a presence of multiple strategic miners. Our research is important to understand a strategic decision of miners and their effect toward the security of blockchain systems such as Bitcoin. We incorporate a game-theoretic analysis and machine learning techniques such as Counterfactual regret minimization to achieve the aim.
