Deep reinforcement learning, multi-agent systems, human-AI interaction


Chongjie Zhang's research focuses on deep reinforcement learning, multi-agent systems, and human-AI interaction. His work explores how intelligent agents can learn to make decisions and effectively collaborate with other agents or humans to achieve goals beyond individual capabilities. He also commits to bridging the gap between cutting-edge research and real-world applications.  


Zhang joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Washington University in Fall 2023. Prior to that, he was an assistant professor in the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences at Tsinghua University and a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
