Sarah Li, Research Intern/PhD student at University of Washington, dynamic game theory for regulating multi-agent behavior


Sarah(Hui Qing) Li moved from China to Victoria, Canada when she was 10 years old and spent her high school days trying out any activity she could get her hands on. She received her Bachelors in Engineering Physics and Math minor from the University of British Columbia in 2017 and is currently a PhD student at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, where she works on developing game-theoretic methods to predict and regulate multi-agent dynamical systems such as a fleet of drones, satellites, and traffic congestion.  This summer, she has been working as a Microsoft Research intern on developing a game-theoretic formulation of the agricultural and food supply chain to study how the flow of information can be used to promote sustainability in the supply chain. She enjoys sailing, rock climbing, hiking, and just being outdoors in general.  She is hoping to visit France this fall, pandemic-permitting, to collaborate with researchers at ENAC Toulouse on a stochastic game model for satellite formation control. 

Sarah Li is a 2020 Amelia Earhart Fellow.
