Manxi Wu

Manxi Wu has joined the ORIE faculty as a visiting assistant professor and will join the ORIE faculty in July 2022.

In addition to her visiting professor appointment at Cornell, Professor Wu is also a postdoctoral researcher with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, working with Professor Shankar Sastry. She will be a research fellow in the Learning and Games Program at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley in the spring of 2022.

Her research studies the role of platforms for information provision and autonomous services in the operations of modern transportation networks. She develops new models that capture the interactions between platforms and strategic users under the physical constraints and uncertainty in transportation networks. Professor Wu also designs information and incentive guidelines for platforms to induce socially desirable outcomes such as system efficiency and resiliency. Her work builds on foundations in game theory, incentive design, and network optimization.

Professor Wu completed her Ph.D. in summer 2021 from the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology supervised by Professor Saurabh Amin. She holds an M.S. in transportation from MIT, and a B.S. in applied mathematics from Peking University.
