Learning, Incentives, and Optimization
for Networked Systems

We are a research group in Carnegie Mellon University’s Electrical and Computing Engineering department, spanning CMU’s Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley campuses. Our research mission is to understand and optimize user interactions in networked systems, where multiple users with different objectives can cooperate and/or compete with each other. To accomplish this, we use tools from machine learning, economics, and optimization. Some of our favorite applications are in data networks, edge/mobile/fog/cloud computing systems, and networks of vehicles.

Dr. Carlee Joe-Wong is the group’s PI. She can be reached by email at cjoewong [at] andrew [dot] cmu [dot] edu. Contact information for other group members is available at People.

Our work is generously funded by the US Army Research Office, DARPA, NSF, Nokia, and Northrop Grumman. All opinions expressed on this webpage are our own.
