My name is Chase McDonald and I am a Social and Decision Sciences PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. My primary focus is on both empirical and simulated multi-agent systems and their connections to artificial (social) intelligence, (social) cognition, and (social) decision-making.

I received my undergraduate degree from UCLA in Computational Social Science through an Individual Field of Concentration major. The degree culminated with a thesis that explored the emergence of inter- and intra-group norms under discrimination in multi-agent reinforcement learning systems.
