Algorithmic Game Theory
Sharing & Digital Economy
Dengji Zhao is an Assistant Professor at ShanghaiTech University (since January 2017). He received double Ph.D. (2012) degrees in Computer Science from University of Western Sydney and University of Toulouse 1 Capitole, and received double M.Sc. (2009) degrees in Computational Logic from Technische Universit?t Dresden and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. He got a B.Sc. (2006) degree in Computer Science from Macau University of Science and Technology. Before joining ShanghaiTech, he has worked as a postdoc (2013-2014) with Prof. Makoto Yokoo (the first AAAI Fellow in Asia) and a research fellow (2014-2016) with Prof. Nick Jennings (the first Regius Professor of Computer Science, UK).
Most of Zhao’s research is on artificial intelligence (especially multi-agent systems) and algorithmic game theory (especially mechanism design and its applications in the sharing economy). He has received 上海青年东方学者 (2017), the Best Ph.D. Thesis award (2012) from University of Toulouse, two champions of The International Trading Agent Competition Market Design Tournament (2009, 2011), and the Best Paper award from The Australasian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (2010). Most of his research outcomes have been published at the most prestigious international conferences on artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems such as AAAI, AAMAS, ECAI and IJCAI. He has also continuously served as a program committee member for these conferences since 2012.
