Nicole Sintov is an assistant professor of behavior, decision
making, and sustainability at the Ohio State University’s
School of Environment and Natural Resources. At the time
this article was written, she was an assistant professor of
46 AI MAGAZINE
research at the Price School of Public Policy and research
lead at the Information Sciences Institute at the University
of Southern California (USC). As an environmental psychologist, her research focuses on developing and evaluating strategies to change human behavior pertaining to sustainability issues (for example, energy and water
consumption), and understanding processes of behavior
change. Using a highly interdisciplinary approach, her
research program integrates the development, application,
and dissemination of sustainable innovations. She has published widely on the interface between humans and power
systems, with publications in Energy Policy, International Journal for Sustainability in Higher Education, and Journal of Energy & Buildings.
Debarun Kar is a fourth year PhD student in the Computer
Science department at the University of Southern California. He is working with Milind Tambe in the Teamcore
Research group. His current research is in the field of artificial intelligence and multiagent systems, focusing on computational game theory with applications to security and
sustainability domains. On the subject of security games he
has coauthored papers that have been presented at AAMAS
and AAAI conferences, in both the main track and the
industry track. He has also organized workshops on the topic of security games at AAMAS. He received his M.S. degree
from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in India,
where he was nominated for the Biswajit Sain memorial
award for best M.S. thesis in 2014. His M.S. thesis focused on
feature weighting and confidence augmented predictions
for real-world case-based reasoning systems.
Thanh Nguyen is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan. She completed her PhD in computer science
at the University of Southern California (USC) in
2016. While at USC, she was a member of the Teamcore
research lab where the whole idea of security games was
conceived and developed. Her work is motivated by real-world security problems, ranging from domains in infrastructure security (for example, the protection of ports and
airports from terrorists) to green security (for example, protecting forests and wildlife from smugglers and poachers)
and cyber security (for example, protecting computer networks from botnets). Thanh has published extensively in
several leading conferences in AI. She has contributed to
building real-world security applications, including the
PAWS application for a conservation area in Southeast Asia
for protecting tigers and the CAPTURE application for the
Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda for protecting
Fei Fang is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research
on Computation and Society (CRCS), Harvard University,
and an adjunct assistant professor at the Institute for Software Research at Carnegie Mellon University. She received
her Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Southern California in June 2016. She received
her bachelor degree from the Department of Electronic
Engineering, Tsinghua University in July 2011. Her research
lies in the field of artificial intelligence and multiagent systems, focusing on computational game theory with applications to security and sustainability domains. Her work has
won the Deployed Application Award at Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI’16) and the outstanding paper award in the Computational Sustainability track
at the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI’15).
