I am pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Manchester, supervised by Dr. Wei Pan and co-supervised by Prof. Angelo Cangelosi. Before starting PhD journey, I obtained the Master degree in Information and Communication Engineering from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences under Prof. Jun Wang and Prof. Yang Yang, and the Bachelor degree in Digital Media Technology from Dalian University of Technology.

My doctoral research is centered on multi-agent learning within open environments, with a specific emphasis on interactions involving non-stationary opponents or teammates.

Update

  • Two under-review papers are public. Aligning Individual and Collective Objectives in Multi-Agent Cooperation as first author and Open Ad Hoc Teamwork with Cooperative Game Theory as second author.
  • First-authored paper “Self-Supervised MAFENN for Classifying Low-labeled Distorted Images over Mobile Fading Channels” has been accepted by Transactions on Mobile Computing (CCF-A, IF=7.9). Thanks all co-authors “Yang Li, Fanglei Sun, Jingchen Hu, Chang Liu, Fan Wu, Kai Li, Ying Wen, Zheng Tian, Yaodong Yang, Jiangcheng Zhu, Zhifeng Chen, Jun Wang, Yang Yang”. Early Access
  • We updated our COLE-Platform GitHub Repo with following new features:
    • Support Human-Human Experiments (human branch)
    • Play with LLM Agent like GPT-4 (human branch)
    • Training your own COLE_SV agent (cole_training branch)
    • ZSC baseline agents including SP, FCP, PBT, MEP (baseline_training branch)
