Title: Fair Reward Division
Professor Larson's research interests fall in the area of artificial intelligence with an emphasis on self-interested multiagent systems and how agents interact. The overarching theme of her research is strategic reasoning in computational settings. She is interested in understanding how ideas from game theory, mechanism design and microeconomics can be used to model and design systems for intelligent agents, as well as in studying the effect that computational limitations have on strategic behaviour, with the aim of reconciling some of the conflicts that arise between computational and game-theoretic constraints.
For example, she has developed models for settings where agents’ interactions are constrained by an underlying network, has designed robust mechanisms and algorithms for multiagent settings where agents deviate from classic rationality assumptions, and has investigated multiagent models where computational and information gathering abilities are limited.
Applications of Professor Larson's work are wide-ranging. She has studied resource sharing and allocation for wildfire control, proposed market mechanisms for crowdsourcing applications, looked at electronic auction and market design, the design and implementation of software agents for negotiation settings, and the use of economic methodologies in computational systems such as cloud computing.
