My name is Chase McDonald and I am a PhD student in Cognitive Decision Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research focuses on both empirical and simulated multi-agent systems and their connections to artificial intelligence and cognitive science. In particular, I am interested in cooperative artificial intelligence and the design of human-compatible autonomous systems. In my current work, I aim to use insights about human behavior to inform the development of such systems.
